Matmen record resounding win

Garland hopes for consistency

Consistently inconsistent. That's the best way to describe the 2010-11 Virginia wrestling team's season thus far. One week the Cavaliers (14-5, 2-0 ACC) come out and dismantle an opponent and the next they let up just enough to allow a weaker team get the better of them.


Matmen take two of three

Matmen square off in ACC tourney

Following a two-week break since their last match, the No. 23 Cavaliers look to make a run in this weekend's ACC Tournament in Raleigh, N.C. The ACC's dearth of wrestling programs - only six schools have wrestling teams - will work to Virginia's advantage this weekend, coach Steve Garland said.


Matmen face ACC-stalwart Maryland on Senior Night

The Cavalier matmen square off against Maryland tomorrow during Senior Night in their final match before postseason play. They face a menacing Terrapin squad ranked first in the ACC and led by senior Hudson Taylor, who ranks first in the NCAA with 22 pins on the season, including one during the Terrapins' last match against Hofstra. Maryland (18-4, 3-0 ACC), currently ninth in the nation, is one of the highest ranked opponents that No.


Garland puts Virginia matmen on national radar

Not every varsity sport at Virginia is known for consistently fielding great teams. Though some squads are expected to perform well all the time, others often go overlooked until they have an outstanding season. The Virginia wrestling team has not always been among the best programs in the country, but this season has proved to be a departure from the past.
