Citadel, Campbell Next for SIUE Wrestling

SIUE Wrestling

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – The month of February will close out the regular season for the SIUE wrestling team.

The Cougars, 3-10 overall and 3-2 in the Southern Conference, will be on the road for the rest of the regular season beginning with SoCon dual meets Thursday at The Citadel (2-8, 1-3) and Saturday at Campbell (8-6, 4-1). Thursday's match is set for 5 p.m. CT. Saturday's match starts at 11 a.m. CT.

"The matches this weekend have a lot of implications on the seeding for the conference tournament," said SIUE Head Coach Jeremy Spates. "We're still looking to get team wins. At this point, we're trying to fix some things technically and heal up before the end of the regular season."

SIUE, which ends the regular season Feb. 15 at Missouri, has been idle since senior day at the Vadalabene Center Jan. 28.

"That off week was good for us," said Spates. "We had a good week of training last week and had a few days off to recover. I think the guys see the potential of what this team can do at the conference tournament and the national tournament."
