A small contingent of our 2014-15 squad went to the Stanford vs Northwestern dual meet down at Stanford today. Stanford took on the #8 ranked NCAA Div. I team in the country with two #1-ranked wrestlers. Even so, Stanford more than held their own with the team scores holding neck and neck nearly throughout.

There was some outstanding wrestling which gave our first-year wrestlers an opportunity to see a wrestling meet for the first time…and a high caliber one at that. More importantly, it was one of hopefully many opportunities for team bonding. I firmly believe that no sport forms tighter team bonds than wrestling.

We may try to get to the next (and final) November home dual for Stanford next Saturday (Nov. 15) where they face North Carolina.
