Wrestlers Return To Action At Waynesburg Invitational

The Apprentice School wrestling team returns to action this weekend after nearly a month-break in its schedule by participating tomorrow in the third annual Waynesburg Invitational at the Rudy Marisa Fieldhouse on the Waynesburg University campus.

This event will feature 11 teams including a pair of NCAA ranked schools in Olivet (MI – 7th in NCAA Division III) and West Liberty (PA – 12th in NCAA Division II) along with the Builders who are ranked ninth in the National Collegiate Wrestling Association.  Other participating schools include: Elizabethtown, Johns Hopkins, Mercyhurst Northeast, Mt. St. Joseph, Muskingum, Penn State Greater Allegheny and Penn State New Kensington.

Individually a total of 24 wrestlers are ranked in the D3wrestle.com rankings, while West Liberty has a ranked wrestler at 174 pounds by Themat.com.  Waynesburg is the two-time returning champion, while Mt. St. Joseph was second last year, Mercyhurst Northeast was fourth and the Builders were fifth.

A full-scale coverage page of the event is available through the Waynesburg University Sports Information Office by clicking here.  You'll be able to access links to see a program, brackets, watch video, listen to matches .

The Builders will hit the mat again on January 11 in the annual Virginia Duals at the Hampton Coliseum.  Pairings for that event will be announced early next week.
