Before the season, Arizona State wrestling looked to march its way through the schedule. 

Retaining most of the core from the team that finished fourth at the 2022 NCAA Wrestling Championships, ASU was in great shape.  

But then season-ending injuries came, taking out Jesse Vasquez (141), Jacori Teemer (157), and Kordell Norfleet (197) from the lineup. 

ASU felt banged up in parts of the season, but regardless of the injuries, the Sun Devils hold a legitimate chance for capturing its fourth consecutive Pac-12 title. The wrestling program already holds 21 Pac-12 titles and leads all ASU programs in conference titles.
