No. 21 Maryland wrestling began its season Thursday on a winning note, taking down American U, 30-7.
The Terps, which have six wrestlers ranked by FloWrestling, won eight of the last nine bouts.
The dominant victory was propelled by two wins by technical fall and two by majority decision, each of which gave the Terps bonus points. Jaxon Smith and Kal Miller recorded the wins by tech fall.
Penn State transfer Seth Nevills secured the team victory with a 6-2 decision in his heavyweight matchup.
The Terps will take part in the Tiger Style Invite, hosted by Missouri, next Saturday.
