A Little News in a Quiet Week (NRS)

I admit it, wrestling is a tough sport for me to follow. There are a lot of contests that aren't dual matches so you don't see a team win or loss at the end of the day. And the truth is that wrestling's not in the scope of sports I follow so frequently, the matches sneak up on me and are done before I think to even report on them. In a better late than never gesture, I'll star by reporting that the 18th ranked Terrapins finished a tough 3 week stretch yesterday with an 18-17 win over 14th ranked Nebraska at the Grapple in the Garden in New York. The Terps opened the day dropping a 34-3 decision to 4th ranked Ohio State. Maryland gained an additional sense of what life will be like when the Terps join the BiG in this stretch of matches dropping another one sided match to sixth ranked Illinois 31-6 while edging 23rd ranked Purdue 20-19 back on the 24th of November. Maryland also out wrestled Columbia that day 27-10. The other matches in the period were a a loss at #16 Pitt and a win over local foe American. Last week, Jimmy Sheptock, who is ranked tenth nationally in his weight class won the ACC wrestler of the week on December 4th and Geoffrey Alexander won the award for the second time this season last week. While there will be lots of post Christmas wrestling the next dual meets don't occur until January 12th when Maryland will face off at home against Brown, Harvard, and Stanford.

In volleyball news, sophomore Ashleigh Crutcher was the only Terrapin named to the All-ACC volleyball team back in November and last week received honorable mention All-American honors from the AVCA. Crutcher is the first Terp to receive this honor since Jade Brown in 2007.
