WVU went 3-2 in weight class championship bouts, and also had two wrestlers bounce back after losses to win third place honors.
The champions for the Mountaineers were Nate Carr at 157, Tom McMath at 165 and Greg Jones at 174. Jones, only a freshman, was selected as the tournament's oustanding wreslter. Carr became only the sixth WVU wrestler to qualify for the NCAAs four times.
Shane Cunanan battled two time All-American Sean Gray of Virginia Tech to the wire before dropping a 7-5 decision in the championship bout, while Billy Smith (149) forfeited his match to JaMarr Bilman of Lock Haven.
WVU's two thirds came courtesy of Brent Miller at 197 and Ryan Kehler at heavyweight.
WVU will therefore place at least seven wrestlers in the NCAA tournament, as the top three spots from the EWL tournament earn automatic bids. Nine wildcard slots will be selected later today.
