After Maryland volleyball unveiled its schedule before the turn of the calendar year, the Terrapins’ wrestling and gymnastics squads released the schedules for their truncated winter seasons Monday.
The wrestling team opens its seven-meet slate this Sunday with a home dual against the Michigan Wolverines. The Terps will face nine opponents this season.
After the Michigan dual, Maryland will head west to East Lansing, Michigan, to face the Spartans and Minnesota Golden Gophers, followed by a trip to Lincoln, Nebraska, to take on the Cornhuskers and the Northwestern Wildcats. The Terps will round out their abbreviated season with a duals against Ohio State, Indiana, Rutgers and Penn State.
Maryland gymnastics will kick off its eight-meet regular season in State College, Pennsylvania on Jan. 16 before its Jan. 22 home opener against Michigan State. The team will then travel to Piscataway, New Jersey to take on the Scarlet Knights before returning home to face Penn State again.
The GymTerps will be on the road in February to face the Iowa Hawkeyes and Michigan, and then will conclude the month with the Big Five Meet. The Big Ten championship is scheduled for Saturday, March 20, and the NCAA Tournament will be held in April.
“We are so excited to finally see our schedule for this season,” head coach Bret Nelligan said in a press release. “Being a part of the Big Ten conference, one of the best in the nation, gives us the opportunity to go head-to-head with some of the top teams in the country week in and week out. We are ready for the challenge.”
