SMYRNA, Del. – Redshirt freshman Patrick McCormick (Poquoson, Va.) claimed the 125-pound title to lead a group of 14 members of the Virginia wrestling team in competition at the National Collegiate Open on Sunday (March 1). 

McCormick won four straight matches on the day to pick up the title at 125 pounds, taking three wins by decision and a win by technical fall on the way to the championship. 

He defeated Baylor Shunk of Penn State in a 6-4 decision to open the day before taking an 18-1 technical fall against Drexel’s David Colton in the quarterfinals. McCormick then won back-to-back matches by decision, defeating Caleb Smith of Appalachian State by a 3-2 decision in the semifinals before beating Old Dominion’s Anthony Molton with an 8-2 decision in the finals.
