MIAMI, Okla. — The Cowley College wrestling team returned to action Friday and Saturday after a month-long layoff at the Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Duals.
The Tigers had some solid showings while winning two of the four duals.
Cowley opened with a 21-18 loss against Ellsworth College before defeating Triton College 26-22. The Tigers then suffered a 20-12 loss to Iowa Central before wrapping up the weekend with a dominating 45-11 win against Northwest College.
“We were really happy with how the weekend went,” Cowley coach Beau Vest said. “Obviously, we would have liked to of picked up a few more wins, but I thought we competed really well against some of the top competition in the country.”
Cowley wrestlers Austin Kincaid (133 pounds), Jesse Nunez (174) and Ottis Peeler (184) each went 3-0 on the weekend.
The Tigers return home at 7 p.m. today to battle Labette at W.S. Scott Auditorium.
“Labette has got a really good team and has picked up some guys at the end of the first semester that are in their lineup now,” Vest said. “It is always a really exciting dual when we face them and it always seems to come down to one match, so our guys are looking forward to wrestle well at home and make a strong push here towards the end of the year.”
