Wrestling aims for 13th ring


Joe Rydel, Sports Editor

With a record of 13 wins and two losses on the season, the Augsburg University Wrestling team is looking to make another historic postseason run. This weekend, the Auggies will host the Upper Midwest Regional at Si Melby Hall. The top-three placewinners at each weight class will punch a ticket into the National Tournament.
Ranked in the top-ten in all but one weight class, the Auggies are looking to send as many wrestlers through to the National Tournament as possible in an attempt to once again down long-time foe Wartburg College. This year, the National Tournament will be held in Cleveland, from March 9–10.
