Maryland had four placers at UWW Junior Nationals, starting with a seventh place finish and All-America honors for freshman Spencer Woods (79 KG) in the Junior Greco-Roman National Championships. Three more Terrapins would secure All-American honors in the weekend's freestyle competition, led by a fourth place finish from sophomore Jaron Smith (84 KG).
