NCAA wrestling award standings update for the 2023 season

INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA has released updated standings for the 2023 NCAA Wrestling Awards that will be awarded in March at the respective Division I, II, and III Wrestling Championships.

The inaugural NCAA Wrestling Awards were presented at the 2012 wrestling championships. The three awards, given in each division, honor the Most Dominant Wrestler as well as the student-athletes that have accumulated the most falls and the most technical falls throughout the course of the regular and postseasons.

For falls and tech falls to be counted for the awards, they must come against opponents in the same division (i.e. Division II vs. Division II). Ties in the two categories are broken based on the aggregate time.

After a five-way tie atop Division I falls last week, Wyatt Hendrickson pulled away after recording his 11th fall of the season, doing so in 24:28.

Christian Small leads Division II for the third straight week with nine falls in 25:57. He has three wrestlers on his tail with eight falls, led by UIndy’s 157-pounder Logan Bailey.

In Division III, Springfield’s Myles Leonard tallied two falls on the week to reach 17 on the season in 38:03.
