Maryland runs away with 27-15 win over Drexel

COLLEGE PARK, MD -- Maryland wrapped up its 2023-24 regular season with a Senior Night victory over Drexel, 27-12. The Terps won five matches on the night, all by bonus points.

The night started early, with seniors Jordan Gabriel and Kevin Makosy both picking up wins in extra countable matches before the dual began.

In the official action, the Terps fell behind 9-0 early after starting at the 157-pound weight class, but back-to-back pins by Chase Mielnik and Jaxon Smith put Maryland up 12-9 heading into the intermission break. The win was Mielnik's second dual victory of the season.

The Terps kept that momentum up coming out of the locker room as Seth Nevills dominated to an 18-2 win by technical fall. Braxton Brown got the Terps their third pin of the night while true freshman Dario Lemus shined and won by technical fall.

Regular starters Kal Miller (141), Ethen Miller (149) and Michael North (157) did not compete.
