Maryland wrestler Michael North was named the co-Big Ten Wrestler of the Week, it was announced Tuesday. Rutgers’ Jackson Turley shared the award.
North became the first Terp to garner the honor since Kyle Cochran did so on Jan. 4, 2022.
A redshirt senior, North pulled off an upset when he pinned No. 13 Trevor Chumbley in a 157-pound bout during the Terps’ resounding win Sunday over Northwestern.
North leads all Terps with five pins on the season.
Maryland will be back in action this weekend with bouts at Ohio State on Friday and Indiana on Sunday.
