Wrestling Blanks Otero in Dual 48-0

La Junta, Colo...

Wrestling moves forward with their 21-22 season as they faced rival Otero Junior College this past Saturday on the road.  After a tough loss in Chadron the week before, NJC was anxious to get back onto the mat to show their opponents that they are indeed a tough team.  Northeastern was also supposed to dual Colby Community College, but unforseen events led to a cancellation of that match.  Next up for Plainsmen wrestling is a tournament at Western Wyoming College on both Friday and Saturday this week.
