WRESTLING: Injuries plague NIC at Eastern Oregon


The Cardinal Wrestling squad headed to La Grande, Oregon on Friday to face the Mountaineers in the final dual of the season. The Cardinals faced EOU earlier in the month at home in Christiansen Gymnasium and walked away with a 40-9 victory. This meeting however, ended with the Cards losing the contest by a similar margin; the difference being in the health of the Cardinal squad. In this meeting, the Cardinals traveled to La Grande without 5 members (half) of their starting line up and forfeited two of the weights. In an unfortunate turn, the Cardinals #5 ranked wrestler at 165 lbs, Izaiah Duran, was injured in the final match of the contest. The Cardinals will look to manage these injuries and get healthy leading up to the conference tournament on February 10th.
