BGSU Wrestling still going strong

01/28/2010 -

While the program got off to slow start this year with a few front office changes, the program is still going strong. The roster filled with some very talented freshman. The only real gaps in the roster this year are at 125 and heavy weight. Returning wrestlers are Josh Paulus at 165, Jerry Matthews at 174, and Mike McClellan at 197/184. All three are National Qualifiers from last year. With wrestling just getting underway there is a lot of work to do this season.
The team traveled to Mott Community college and wrestled against GVSU, Oakland, and Mott. While it wasn't pretty against GVSU and Oakland, the team had only practice one week leading up to that tournament. They only lost to Mott 21-34.This past sunday BG wrestled University of Toledo winning 34-10. This was a good win for BG, and shows the progress the team has made in the last two weeks.
