The Terps leaned on a youthful core comprised of redshirt and true freshmen: Braxton Brown, Kal Miller, Ethen Miller and Jaxon Smith.
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.
The Terps fell to 10-9 on the season.
The Terps secured a 10-win season for the first time since 2012-13.
“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.
The Terps snapped a streak that's spanned since 2016 against the Boilermakers.
