MSU-Northern wrestlers clobber Simon Fraser on the mat
The Montana State University-Northern wrestling team is having a good end to the month of January.
On Saturday night in Clarkston, Wash., the Lights went unbeaten in matches against Simon Fraser University, and won the dual 33-6. Northern was open at 125 pounds, but won all nine matches it competed in.
"Overall these guys really wrestled well," MSU-N head coach Tyson Thivierge said. "We created a match like we are ready and capable of doing, we took the action to them and continued to improve our situations. Not losing a match was a big benefit and boost for these guys. They are competing on a very high level with a great amount of momentum at this juncture of the season. I am very pleased with our attitudes, mindset and wrestling right now."
Next up for the Lights is a trip to SOU on Feb. 5.
