WARRENSBURG, Mo. - The SIUE wrestling team competed at the Roger Denker Open at Central Missouri on Sunday and saw several wrestlers finish the day as placewinners.
"This was a very good day for (Nagel and Tindle)," Head Coach David Ray said. "It was the first time either of them has placed in a tournament at this level, so it's great for their confidence."
Jake Residori, another freshman, placed fifth at 174 pounds as well. Residori earned first-place honors at 165 pounds during SIUE's last visit to Warrensburg, when they kicked off the season at the Central Missouri Open on Nov. 11.
"Overall it was good to have three guys place," Ray added. "It could have been even better if everyone had been heathy enough to wrestle."
SIUE will return to the mat next Sunday when they welcome Northwestern and Northern Iowa to the Vadalabene Center for a pair of dual meets. Action is set to begin at 12 p.m.
