â€¨It was senior day at wrestling on Grounds on Sunday, but in addition to recognizing seniors, the Cavaliers were able to welcome back one of their own. Chris Henrich (2008-11), the all-time leader in wins in Virginia wrestling history, returned to Grounds and was recognized prior to the start of Sunday’s dual meet. Henrich was a three-time All-American and two-time ACC Champion on the way to a 136-21 career record as a Cavalier. He also placed three times at the NCAA Championships, including a career-best third-place finish in his junior campaign.
This past weekend, #UVASB second-year head coach Joanna Hardin returned to her old stomping grounds. Hardin was the head coach at McNeese from 2015-16, which was the host site for the Cowgirl Classic tournament that the Cavaliers were playing in. KPLC-TV did a story on Hardin’s return.
