SIUE Set for Senior Day

vs. Truman State

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – The SIUE wrestling team will celebrate Senior Day Sunday with a dual meet against Truman State.

"Our lineup is going to look a little bit different," said SIUE head Coach Jeremy Spates. "We have some of our guys who need extra matches so we're going to send them up to the tournament at Iowa State."

The Cougars, 1-11, will be spotted three open weight classes.

"We still want those who are wrestling to concentrate on the same things like attacking, trying to get our ties. We've been talking a lot about moving our foot whether that's on top or on bottom."

Spates also noted that freshman Justin Ruffin was ranked in the top 25 of the national coach's ranking. That ranking helps determine the field for next month's NCAA Division I Championships.

SIUE will honor seniors Nate Higgins, Jake McKiernan, Erik Travers, Christian Dulaney and Cameron Kelly.
