It is hard to believe it is already February. Tournament time will be here soon. If we didn’t have a sense of urgency before, we better have it now.
Saturday was a busy day on campus. We hosted a few youth wrestling duals during the day and at night we hosted Central Michigan in a dual. I was pleased with the team’s effort level. I felt the guys wrestled at a better pace. Making changes is hard and I see the guys making changes. They should be commended for their effort. We lost the dual, but did win 4 of the 10 bouts and competed hard in the bouts we lost.
We have competed at home for 4 straight weeks. I can’t recall being home so many weeks in a row during wrestling season. It has been great getting to know our home crowd. The team certainly appreciates the support.
This Saturday we will be on the road. We will compete at Drexel at noon and then at Millersville at 6:30pm. Drexel will be our last conference dual of the year. Performing well will help our guys prepare for the CAA tournament.
I like that after we compete against Drexel, we will have to travel to Millersville and compete again that evening. A little adversity will help our team grow. We will get a chance to test our mental and physical toughness. I hope we pass the test.
