Tyrone Neal and Sully Krouse with trophy, 1974
Are you a UMD wrestling fan? We’ve heard they’re pretty cool. Check out this moment in history – Terp Tyrone Neal became the first African American wrestler to win the ACC Championship in 1974. He went on to win another ACC title, as well as placing 7th overall in the 1975 NCAA tournament. He’s standing with former UMD wrestling coach (and alum) Sully Krouse. Go cheer on the Terps squad this year – their first meet is this Saturday!
