After having the week free from competition, the Panthers see very little movement in the national polls from last week when the team saw seven wrestlers in the national polls, including the team’s four NCAA qualifiers and three Panthers whose hopes of continuing their seasons rest on potential at-large bids.

The Blue and Gold ended 2021 regular season at (3-4, 1-4 ACC) on the year. The squad took fifth at the 2021 ACC Championships in Raleigh, North Carolina on Feb. 28. In the process, the Panthers qualified four wrestlers for the 2021 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships.
