BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Guys wrestled very well tonight. I thought we had great energy and effort. Sometimes it's hard to get up for a mid-week match, especially with eight freshman in the lineup, but they did a great job. Friday will be another test for us as we look to turn around some individual losses against Averett, especially at 125 and 141." --Head Coach Nate Yetzer
BACK ON THE MAT
Coach Nate Yetzer's team will be back in action Friday, Feb. 1, at Averett University. The dual meet is scheduled for a 7:00 p.m. start in Danville, Virginia.
