Bloomsburg Sports Information
BLOOMSBURG—Six home matches, including a battle with Arizona State, highlight the 2013-14 Bloomsburg University wrestling schedule.
The Huskies, under the direction of first-year head coach Jason Mester, will open their season on Friday, Nov. 15 taking on Lehigh University at 7 p.m. A week later the Huskies will have their home opener taking on the Sun Devils of Arizona State. ASU finished third in the PAC-12 last year and returns two NCAA qualifiers to its lineup this season.
Bloomsburg then hits the road for nearly two months visiting Philadelphia (Keystone Classic); New York City (Grapple at the Garden); Erie (PSAC Championships); Hampton, VA (Virginia Duals).
The team will finally return home to Nelson Field House for a matchup with Hofstra on Jan. 19. After a trip to Edinboro, the Huskies wrestle four straight home matches taking on Cleveland State, Clarion, Rutgers and George Mason.
The final two matches of the regular season feature trips to Lock Haven and Binghamton. The EWL Championships will be in Cleveland on March 8 with the NCAA Championships scheduled for March 20-22 in Oklahoma City.
In 2012-13 the Huskies posted a record of 17-3 claiming the first outright EWL Dual Meet Championships in program history while beating three nationally ranked teams in Maryland, Pittsburgh, and Edinboro. The 17 wins tied for the most in the programs history. As a team the Huskies finished ranked 15th in the country by the NWCA.
