Stanford Line-Up Determined at Wrestle-Offs
Oct. 28, 2006
Stanford, Calif. - The Stanford wrestling team kicked off the 2006-07 season today, as seven sets of wrestlers faced off in the annual intrasquad match to determine the team's starting line-up.
There were no matches at 125 pounds, 133 pounds, 141 pounds, 197 pounds or heavyweight, as Gardner, Chavez, Jared Boyer and Phillip Doerner did not need to compete for starting spots today. The starter at 133 pounds has yet to be determined.
'I was pleased to see the guys wrestle hard today,' said head coach Kerry McCoy. 'It was nice get some competition in a competition setting rather than just in practice. I'm very happy with how we wrestled. We still have some decisions to make in some weight classes, but the bottom line is we'll be ready for next week.'
The line-up determined today will likely be the Cardinal starting line-up for the Avalon Duals in Erie, Pa. next Saturday. At the season-opening event, the Cardinal will wrestle Mercyhurst, Maryland and Edinboro.
