Triumph Together 2022
Wrestling

Following the success of last year, the Virginia Tech wrestling program, is eyeing another historic campaign. The Hokies are one of only four programs in the nation to finish with three or more All-Americans in each of the past eight years. In addition, the program recorded a Dual Team title and the squad is looking forward to the upcoming 2021-22 academic year season.

The program kicked off the season with Bryce Andonian competing and finishing with a 2021 Junior World Championship bronze medal - the same notable tournament that saw  Mekhi Lewis become the first World Champion in Virginia Tech Athletics history. Lewis went on to become the program’s first National Champion the same year. Talented and fearless, Andonian became only the third ever world championship medalist in Hokies wrestling history

In just under a decade, Tech Wrestling has grown into a perennial powerhouse, securing top-10 finishes in eight of the last nine years going toe-to-toe with the nation’s best. This season, we return four NCAA All-Americans in Sam Latona, Korbin Myers, Hunter Bolen, and Lewis. Moreover, the crop of young Hokies entering the lineup looking to improve on last year’s performances plus the addition of PAC-10 Champion, Nathan Traxler to the lineup has Coach Robie and the squad eyeing not only the conference and Dual Meet title, but also the program’s second NCAA trophy finish.

Hokie Dual Meets have become appointment viewing in recent years, for example our rivalry match against the NC State Wolfpack last year in Cassell. This season looks to be no different as the team has national contenders scheduled in the likes of Ohio State, Missouri, conference rival NC State, and quality foes in the prestigious Southern Scuffle in Chattanooga as well the National Duals in Florida. Coach Robie and staff have never been one to shy away from the bright lights and with one of the toughest schedules in the nation, this year is no different.
