Final MAC Dual of Season Set for Saturday

at Ohio

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE wrestling travels to Athens, Ohio, to take on the Ohio Bobcats in the final Mid-American Conference dual match of the season for both squads.

Ohio, 5-4 overall and 3-1 in the MAC, faces off against Old Dominion Friday night before taking on the Cougars Saturday in a noon CT matchup.

The Cougars enter the match with a 1-10 dual match record and a 1-5 mark in league action.

SIUE Head Coach Jeremy Spates said he expects Ohio to wrestle hard.

"They wrestle through every situation," he said. "They wrestle tough on bottom. I expect a lot of good matches."

The Cougars have shown strength at the middle weights. Tyshawn Williams (149), Justin Ruffin (157), Nate Higgins (165) and Sergio Villalobos (184) all have a .500 or better record against MAC opponents.

"They're feeding off each," Spates said. "It's helpful when they all are wrestling well."
