Note (3/7/2016): All numbers listed in the article and charts below are for matches within Division III. Matches against non-DIII opponents are note counted for falls, tech falls, or dominance.
The NCAA has released the latest results for the three season-long awards given at the conclusion of the NCAA Championships. After having the top of the falls and tech falls standings tied for most of the season, all three awards have a single leader as of today. AJ Kowal of Stevens Institute of Technology has 21 falls and will compete in the NCAA Championships. Michael Fleck of Wilkes leads with 13 tech falls, and his season has concluded. Second place Jeff Palmeri will compete at the Championships and is just one behind, but he will need to get two tech falls, as Fleck would break a tie with the shortest aggregate time. Riley Lefever leads the Most Dominant standings with 5.73 points per match and could win the award for the second consecutive year if he wins a third NCAA Championship. Donald Longendyke of Augsburg is in second, while positions three through five are held by other 184 lbs. wrestlers.
