Senior Andrew Atkinson will be competing to become a four-time NCAA qualifier and only the 10th four-time qualifier in Virginia history. He qualified in the three previous years at 157 pounds before moving up to 165 pounds this season. Sam Krivus and Jack Mueller both look to make a return trip to the NCAAs after earning their first bids last year. Mueller advanced to the semifinals at 125 pounds a year ago.
