Senior Jake Stork ended his run at nationals, losing 18-6 to Cornell's Clint Wattenberg in the quarterfinals.

Entering nationals, Stork had won 27 of his last 28 matches and was second in the 184-pound weight class in wins. He was one of six at-large wrestlers from the ACC that received a bid to the NCAA Championships.

After posting a 1-1 record on day one of competition, Stork had to fight his way through wrestlebacks. Stork easily advanced through the second and third rounds, earning him the quarterfinal match against Wattenberg.

Stork completes his career at Maryland after going to nationals in each of the last three years. He finishes as the NCAA leader in pins with 23 and a season record of 38-6.
