Jaxon Smith's loss late Friday night concluded the Terps' 2023 season.
The two heaviest wrestlers in the Terps' lineup will both compete in the NCAA championships.
Smith captured the best Big Ten championships finish by a Terp since 2019.
Kal Miller, Ethen Miller and Jaxon Smith all earned automatic qualifications to the NCAA championships.
Miller earned his first victory in more than a month in the Terps' dual against Binghamton Friday.
The Terps fell to 10-9 on the season.
The Terps secured a 10-win season for the first time since 2012-13.
Sandoval wasn’t ready to give up on his time with the Terps despite initially deciding to move on when graduating last spring.
“I can say that I’ve been a part of both Maryland’s Big Ten wins … it doesn’t get any less sweet,” Smith said.
Any chance of back-to-back conference wins for the Terps after they notched their first in 63 matches on Friday was stomped early by the top-ranked Nittany Lions.
