The season is finally upon us and last night’s Intra-Squad dual was filled with action and suspense as Drury wrestlers and coaches were divided into gray and black teams to do battle against each other. This year’s Black team edged the Gray team 30-18.
“We are very pleased with tonight’s matches. This team is continuing to progress and grow with its veterans and new talent. I am super proud of the athletes and how they handled themselves. They focus on the process over the outcome and it allowed them to really work hard in every match. Last night was about having fun and embracing the opportunity to compete.” – James Reynolds Drury Wrestling Head Coach
