Matt Snyder, ranked 10th in the country, pinned Dominic Parisi at 125 and moved into the top 10 in career wins at UVa, with 91. At 149 pounds, 20th-ranked Derek Valenti earned his 90th career win with a victory over Zach Kechter.

Snyder and Stephen Doty both pinned their opponents, while 15th-ranked Jedd Moore earned the technical fall in just one period at 157 pounds.
