Plainsmen Take 2 of 3 At Western Wyoming Duals

Rock Springs, Wyo...

This past weekend the Plainsmen wrestling team traveled to Wyoming to compete at the Western Wyoming Community College duals.  Northeastern competed against Western Wyoming, Northwest College and Colby Community College.  After beating rival Otero Junior College (who was ranked #17 nationally) 48-0 the past week, NJC had a tough dual coming up against #3 nationally ranked Western Wyoming and was anxious to see how they would battle a great team.  The Plainsmen came out of the tournament with wins against Northwest College (currently ranked #23 nationally) and Colby College.  On Saturday, December 4th, Northeastern hosts Western Colorado at 4pm in the Bank of Colorado Event Center.
