GREENSBORO, N.C. – Senior Jimmy Sheptock leads a group of three University of Maryland wrestlers named to the 2014 All-ACC Wrestling Team, the conference announced Wednesday.
Heavyweight Spencer Myers and 133-pound Tyler Goodwin join Sheptock. The honor is the third for Myers and Sheptock, while Goodwin makes his first appearance.
A 2013 All-American at 184 pounds, Sheptock became the first wrestler in school history to attain a No. 1 national ranking this season. Sheptock recently won his third straight ACC title and enters the NCAA Championships with a 28-0 record.
After serving a redshirt season, Myers returned to the form that saw him win ACC titles in 2011 and 2012. The Selinsgrove, Pa went 23-4 and was the runner up at the 2014 ACC Wrestling Championships.
Goodwin burst onto the scene this season and was the only true freshman to take part in dual action for the Terps. After a fairly productive year, Goodwin shocked top-seeded Shelton Mack of Pittsburgh in the ACC Championship semifinals to qualify for the NCAA Championships.
All three wrestlers will travel to compete at the 2014 NCAA Wrestling Championships in Oklahoma City. The competition begins on March 20 and finishes with the finals on March 22 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
