Cougars Face Drexel, West Liberty


EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE wrestling will head to Pennsylvania for a pair of dual meets Saturday.

The Cougars (0-1) will be competing at North Penn High School in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, against Division I Drexel (0-0) and Division II West Liberty (1-0) beginning at 10 a.m. CT.

"I think it's going to be a good experience for our guys," said SIUE Head Coach Jeremy Spates. "They are trying to pack the house for the matches."

Spates will go with a similar lineup to the Cougars' first event of the season at Chattanooga, a 29-14 loss.

"It will be a good opportunity for us to see a different style of wrestling – East Coast style of wrestling," noted Spates.

Bonus points for all of the teams involved will be key, according to Spates.

"There's several good matchups here, but I think some of our guys are looking to bounce back from losses at Chattanooga.
