INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA has released updated standings for the 2022 NCAA wrestling awards that will be awarded in March at the Divisions II and III wrestling championships following NCAA regional competitions that took place over the weekend to determine the national championship qualifiers.
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 results 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 falls and tech falls categories are broken based on the aggregate time. For the Most Dominant Wrestler award, 17 matches and qualifying for the national tournament are required for this award.
