Nobody got the ending they wanted from the 2019-20 season. Covid-19 canceled the NCAA Championship Tournament, truncating a superb season before it could be properly concluded. But that doesn't mean we can't honor the extraordinary efforts the student-athletes put forth on the mat.

The 2020 Nominees for Breakout Performance


184: Hunter Bolen, Virginia Tech

Bolen went 0-2 at the 2018 NCAA Championships before taking a redshirt season. Bolen asserted himself at the CKLV and never looked back. He secured the #2 seed at the 2020 NCAAs after beating Trent Hidlay in the ACC finals.

197: Noah Adams, West Virginia

Adams had a solid if unspectacular redshirt freshman season on the collegiate varsity circuit, going 1-2 at the 2019 NCAAs and finishing with a 19-15 record. His sophomore campaign was an awakening for the Coal City native. Adams won 32 matches against exactly zero losses. 

Adams won both Southern Scuffle and Big 12 titles, earning himself the number two seed (behind also undefeated Kollin Moore) at the 2020 Tournament.

133: Roman Bravo-Young, Penn State

A true freshman RBY snuck onto the 133-pound podium last season in one of the toughest brackets in recent memory. Another year later and there can be no doubt that Arizona native is a contender. Bravo-Young was ranked either third or fourth all year long and finished as runner-up at the Big Ten Championships.

157: Josh Humphreys, Lehigh

Humphreys had an up and down 2019 as a true freshman, but that extra year in the Mountain Hawk wrestling room paid dividends as the sophomore found better consistency this year, winning an EIWA title and earning a #6 seed at NCAAs.
