Opening weekend for the Cornell men’s wrestling team was both busy and successful, with the Red winning its match against Oklahoma on Saturday night, followed by a win for the New York State title on Sunday — Cornell’s third in the last three years. Although four of the usual starters were sidelined due to various injuries, the Red was still able to have a strong showing throughout the weekend and utilize players who don’t usually see mat time.
