Mason wrestling will return to the mat on Saturday, January
7th for four dual matches in the NC State Duals. After a tough home
match against Appalachian State University last Thursday, Mason is anxious
to get back on the mat and compete.
"This will be another great opportunity for the guys to
compete," said Head Coach Joe Russell. "Some
of our younger guys were a little intimidated in their first home competition
last Thursday, but we are looking for everyone to make daily improvements."
The Patriots will wrestle North Carolina State University at noon,
Shippensburg University at 2pm, Anderson University at 4pm and Campbell
University at 6pm. "Despite the setback,
we have already improved a lot this season and it is very important for us to
continue progressing," said Russell. "The
wrestling season is definitely strenuous but we are going to
make sure the guys stay hungry and competitive throughout the season,"
Weigh-ins will begin at 11am and all matches will take place
on the campus of North Carolina State University.
