Oct. 12, 2007
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana University wrestling team is hosting a pair of open practices in the next few weeks. The pubilc is encouraged to come watch grappling practice before the Penn State (Oct. 20) and Ball State (Nov. 3) football games.
Practices will begin two and a half hours before football kickoff. To get a sneak peek at this season's Hoosier wrestling squad, stop by the wrestling practice room which is located in the basement of Assembly Hall on the west side.
The Hoosiers are coming off a 2006-07 campaign in which they finished 13-5 overall and 4-4 in the Big Ten, and saw three individuals reach the All-American stand at the NCAA Championships. Sophomores Matt Coughlin and Angel Escobedo, and Junior Andrae Hernandez each accomplished that feat last season. Senior Brandon Becker is the fourth All-American to return for the Hoosiers in 2007-08, as he earned All-American status during both his freshman and sophomore seasons. In addition, the IU recruiting class has been ranked in the national top-25 in several preseason publications.
