SIUE Travels to No. 7 Mizzou

SIUE at Missouri

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE wrestling closes out the regular season Wednesday with a 4:45 p.m. match at No. 7 Missouri.

The match will be broadcast on the Mizzou Network.

"This match is important because we are going up against a lot of top-ranked opponents," said Spates. "Any time you can get wins against nationally-ranked opponents, it helps with conference seeding and NCAA rankings."

Freddie Rodriguez and John Fahy will face their opponents for a second time.

Rodriguez and Missouri's Barlow McGhee, both ranked as high as No. 25 nationally, met in last year's NCAA Championship with McGhee taking the 125-pound match 9-5. Fahy and No. 2-ranked Levion Mayes met last season with Mayes collecting a 15-3 decision at 149 pounds.

"We're also wrestling before the Missouri state tournament so it should be an exciting atmosphere," added Spates.

After the Missouri dual, SIUE will prepare for the Southern Conference Championships, to be held March 4 in Charleston, South Carolina.
