UNC Wrestling took a trip to Roanoke, Va., for the Hokie Open this Sunday. North Carolina had several wrestlers place.
24 Tar Heels made the trip, and nine of those placed somewhere in the top 6 of their respective weight classes.
This was an open, so the performances are more focused on each individual.The top wrestlers were well distributed across different weights, but two classes in particular had multiple top finishers.
The 133-pound weight class had two in Zachary Sherman and James Szymanski. Szymanski finished fifth, but ended on three straight victories after being on the losing end early in the day. Sherman had a very strong day, finishing third. He won his first three matches, including an 18-3 win over Duke wrestler Josh Copeland. Sherman also finished the day with a win.
