WRESTLING: NIC Double Dual vs. Western Wyoming and UNLV

11/30/2017

The Cardinal Wrestling Squad took to the mat on 11/30, with a dual against the Western Wyoming Mustangs and the UNLV Running Rebels.  

The Cards began the evening by squaring-off against Western Wyoming. At 125 pounds, Freshman Esco Walker got the Cardinals off to a good start with a victory in double overtime. Also winning from the Cardinals were Blake Beard (141), Thomas Stevenson (157), and Damian Trujillo (285). The Cardinals struggled to find a rhythm at several weights however and ultimately dropped the dual 16 - 32 against the Mustangs. 

The Cardinals were able to make some quick adjustments against the UNLV Running Rebels, winning in 9 of the 10 bouts by bonus points with a final score of 49 - 4. 

The Cardinals compete again 12/1 at the Cliff Keen Invitational, with coverage provided by FloWrestling.
