Cougars Travel to Truman State

February 10, 2003

       The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville wrestling squad will travel to Truman State University Sunday for a dual meet with the Bulldogs. The meet will begin at 2 p.m.
       "Truman State is kind of in the same boat as us in the fact it is hard for them to fill their lineup," said Coach Booker Benford. "If our guys wrestle tough, and Truman State's lineup falls in our favor, I think this is a team we can beat."
       SIUE is coming off a 47-3 defeat to Northern Illinois. Zach Stephens (St. Charles, Mo.) claimed the lone victory for the Cougars. Stephens is currently ranked third in the nation at 174 pounds.
       After Sunday's dual, the Cougars only have one more meet before the NCAA Regionals on March 2. The NCAA Championships are set for March 14th and 15th.
