Stanford Begins Season with Wrestle-Offs Saturday
Oct. 24, 2007
Stanford, Calif. - The Stanford wrestling team will hold its season-opening intrasquad meet on Saturday at 2 p.m. in Burnham Pavilion. The matches will determine the team's starting line-up for its first competition of 2007-08, a dual with Fort Hays State in Tecumseh, Kans. on Nov. 9.
'I'm excited to officially get the season started,' said Head Coach Kerry McCoy. 'Although we'll be competing against ourselves, it gives us a chance to see how our guys compete outside the wrestling room and who our starting line-up will be.'
Wrestle-offs will be followed by the season kickoff dinner and auction, which is set for 6 p.m at the Schwab Center on campus. Tickets to the dinner are $60 per person. Those interested in attending can contact McCoy at email@example.com.
The top two wrestlers in each weight class will be determined this week at practice, and will square off in the final bout on Saturday. In addition, Saturday's events will feature a number of exhibition matches.
Those competing this week for the starting spot in each weight class are as follows:
184 - No match
