The men’s wrestling team traveled to Oklahoma City this weekend to compete in the NCAA tournament. Eight wrestlers fought for the Red, with three of those eight finishing in the Top-10 for the country. While the team finished in seventh place overall, sophomore Nahshon Garrett finished second in the country individually. The other Top-10 finishers, Gabe Dean and Brian Realbuto, are both freshman, a promising sign for the team looking forward.
