COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Senior Jake Stork was one of six at-large wrestlers from the ACC that received a bid to nationals which will be held from March 20-22 in Kansas City, Mo.
Stork, who finished second at the ACC championships, leads the nations in pins with 23 and is second in the 184-pound weight class nationally in wins with 34.
Sophomore Adam James, coming off a second-place finish at the ACC championships, is the second alternate for nationals. Each ACC champion receives an automatic bid and six at-large wrestlers are picked from the ACC for nationals. If two of these 16 wrestlers are unable to compete at nationals, James would earn a bid.
James went 15-13 on the season, and scored two pins. Heading into nationals, James will have won four out of his past five matches.
