"The Missouri Valley Tournament is a tough tournament, maybe like a smaller version of the national tournament and the guys wrestled tough." The Blue Hawks had accumulated 13 team pins at the tournament which gained bonus points for the team. "Those pins are huge in a tournament, it can seem like we have another wrestler with the extra bonus points we go today," stated DSU Head Wrestling Coach Justin Schlecht.
Dickinson State returns to the mat this Thursday when they host Concordia College at 7:00 PM in Scott Gymnasium before the Tyler Plummer Classic this Saturday which begins at 9:00 AM in Weinbergen Gym.
