Wrestling Wins Back-to-Back ACC Tournaments, Crowns Four Champs

Here's the press release from UMd Athletics:

Four Terrapin wrestlers won individual titles and seven Terps earned automatic bids to the NCAA Championships as the Maryland wrestling team won its second consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference title and fourth championship in the last five years Saturday night at Carmichael Arena. It is the Terps 24th conference title which is the most of any ACC school.

Senior Kyle John (157) and redshirt sophomores Jimmy Sheptock (174) and Christian Boley (197) won their first conference championships, and sophomore Spencer Myers won his second in as many years to lead the Terps to 83 points. Virginia finished second with 73.5.

"We want to do this every year," said head coach Kerry McCoy. "Our expectation is to be the best team in the conference. You can't be one of the best teams in the country if you are not one of the best teams in your conference. Our conference is getting better. We have to work harder to stay with our conference. As the conference gets better, we get better, and that's the best thing about it."

Kyle John finally won his elusive ACC title in his final attempt after being a finalist the last two years.

Josh Asper, the 4X MD HS state champ, failed to win the 165 lbs class, losing to Peter Yates of Virginia Tech. It was Asper's first loss on the mat this season.

Since Kyle John is the only senior in the lineup, Maryland should be considered the odds-on favorite to make it a three-peat in 2012.
