COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Four members of the Virginia wrestling team won championships at the U.S. Collegiate Championships on Sunday (Feb. 19) in the final weekend of action for the Cavaliers before the ACC Championships.

Redshirt freshman Sam Krivus (Greensburg, Pa.), redshirt sophomore Chance McClure (Commerce, Ga.), redshirt senior Will Mason (Virginia Beach, Va.) and redshirt sophomore Will Schany (Blair, Neb.) all won titles by going undefeated at their weight class.

Redshirt freshman Tyler Love (Clifton, Va.) and senior Chuck Boddy (Abington, Pa.) both competed at heavyweight, finishing third and fourth, respectively.

At 133 pounds, Mason posted three wins that included a major decision over Michael Johnson of Northern Colorado, a pin of Chance Ikei from Arizona State and a tech fall over Alec Opsal of Air Force on the way to his title.

Krivus picked up a pair of bonus-point wins on his way to the title at 149 pounds. The redshirt freshman started with a tech fall over Jake Kurzhals of Air Force before following that with a major decision over Zach Martinez of Northern Colorado.

Schany turned in three dominant performances on the way to the 184-pound championship.
