Cowboy wrestler win their fourth straight dual
The Wyoming Cowboy wrestling squad wrapped up their regular season with a 25-11 road dual win against the West Virginia Mountaineers. The Cowboys won seven matches on the night. The win was the Pokes’ fourth straight dual victory.
“It was a good night. We haven’t won seven matches in a dual all year, so that was encouraging to see,” Wyoming Head Coach Mark Branch said. “We don’t like to be in those close matches, but our guys stepped up and did a good job of closing those matches out.”
