WRESTLING: Cardinals climb past Mountaineers


1/13/2018: The Cardinal Wrestling Team traveled to Missoula, MT on Saturday to face a tough NAIA opponent; the Eastern Oregon Mountaineer Wrestling Squad. Despite a slow start to the dual, the Cardinals had a very strong showing in their second-semester debut and showed that they were able to make some mid-match adjustments to win hard-fought bouts. The Cards went on to win 7 of 9 matches on the day, with bonus-point wins coming at 4 weights for NIC for a final score of  30-9 in favor of the Cardinals.

The Cardinals will look to carry this momentum into their last long road stretch of the year. The Cards will compete again on 1/19 in Roseburg, OR, in a double-dual between Southwestern Oregon Community College and Umpqua Community College, before facing Clackamas Community College on 1/20 in Oregon City, OR.
