Olivia Wagner scored twice as No. 10 Maryland (8-2-2) came from behind for a 3-1 victory over No. 3 Virginia (9-2-1, 2-1-1) that gave the host Terps a 4-0-1 record in Atlantic Coast Conference play for the first time time in the program's 26-year history. Kaili Torres scored for Virginia in the 40th minute, then Maryland got goals from Wagner in the 73rd and 84th minutes before Danielle Hubka added an insurance goal in the 86th.

More Division I: Amy Savage scored her second goal in two games, but UMBC (1-8-2, 0-2 America East) fell, 4-1, at Hartford (6-2-3, 2-0).

Maryland chapter of Wrestling Hall to induct Ray Lewis

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, a state champion wrestler in the 189-pound weight class at Kathleen High in Lakeland, Fla., will headline the 2012 class of inductees for the Maryland chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. Lewis is one of two men being honored with the Hall of Fame's Outstanding American award on Oct.28 at 2 p.m. at the Loews Annapolis Hotel. Joe Galli, a former wrestler and successful businessman, is the other. He was an Atlantic Coast Conference champion, team captain and four-year starter at North Carolina, and his son, Peter, recently won two championships for St. Paul's. The Outstanding American award is given to wrestlers who achieve exemplary accomplishments outside the sport. The Maryland chapter will also honor Sgt. Travis Manning with the Medal of Courage. Manning, a Purple Heart recipient who wrestled and played football and baseball for Kent County High, was critically injured while serving in Iraq in 2004. Four honorees will also be inducted to the Lifetime Service to Wrestling category, for which they have spent at least 20 years in service of the sport: Claude Darr, who coached Franklin from 1966 to 1984 and was Franklin's football coach for 25 years; Gary Siler, longtime coach at Harford Tech, who has more than 350 career wins and a state title (2006); John Lowe, former coach at Western Maryland College, which is now McDaniel College, and the current coach at Winters Mill, which has won three state titles; and Rob Smoot, longtime coach and MSA champion at McDonogh and team captain at Duke.
