After nearly a month hiatus due to the holiday break, the Southwest Minnesota State wrestling team will get back to action on Saturday, Jan. 12 in Gunnison, Colorado at the 23rd annual Tracy Borah Duals. The Mustangs will take part in four duals versus Colorado Mesa, California Baptist, Western State (Colo.) and Colorado State – Pueblo. SMSU is a perfect 7-0 in dual matches this season.
LAST TIME OUT
The Southwest Minnesota State wrestling team extended its perfect season record in dual matches to 7-0 with three wins over Ridgewater Community College, Itasca Community College and St. John’s over the weekend.
SMSU used a Micah Larson pin to secure a 28-18 win over Ridgewater Community College. In its match versus Itasca, SMSU went 5-1 to take the dual, 23-3. The final four bouts were double forfeits. In the last dual of the day, SMSU tallied four pins en route to a 35-15 victory over Saint John’s.
