WRESTLING: Cards Finish Big Week of Wrestling with 9 Placers at the Spokane Open


Your North Idaho Cardinals finished another long week of wrestling action with the Spokane Open on Sunday. The Cardinal Squad had three dual meets throughout the week, going 2-1 in dual competition and ended with 9 placers at the Spokane Open, including three finalists and one champion. The Cards began the dual action with a rocky start, dropping a dual to No. 4 Clackamas. Bouncing back however, the Cards came out with a bang the following day, winning both of their duals against Highline Community College and Umpqua Community College. After finishing dual action, the Cardinal squad competed at the Spokane Open to finish the weekend.

With the two dual wins, your North Idaho Cardinals will head into Thanksgiving Break with 699 dual victories, and will look to reach the 700 mark when they compete next in Las Vegas, Nevada against a tough Western Wyoming squad on 11/29.
