Taylor Named ACC Wrestler of the Week

Feb. 23, 2010

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Hudson Taylor has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Wrestler of the Week for the fourth time this season.

Taylor, a senior from Pennington, N.J., scored a major decision over defending ACC champion Brent Jones in the 197-pound weight class in last Saturday's regular-season finale at Virginia.

The third-ranked Taylor helped the 10th-ranked Terps overcome a five-point deficit to defeat No. 23 Virginia and finish the regular season unbeaten in ACC dual competition. In a rematch of last year's 197-pound ACC Championship, won by Jones, Taylor defeated the 18th-ranked wrestler in the nation by a 13-5 score. The victory helped Maryland battle back for an eventual 22-11 team win.

Taylor is 36-2 on the season and is tied for the NCAA Division I lead in wins. He also leads the nation with 22 pins.
