Lehigh opened up the season with a big win over Oklahoma State and closed the dual season with a big win over Arizona State. Big matches with ranked wrestlers at 125, 157 and 285. There was some amazing wrestling from both teams punctuated with some high level scrambling. Good stuff if you’re a fan of the sport. Coach Jones wasn’t taking any questions about Zahid Valencia last night.
Some of the knuckleheads that I coach were sitting next to me making a bunch of noise. Sorry for the audio in the second half of the match.
