The Case Western Reserve University wrestling team is set to host the CWRU Mini Invitational on Saturday, November 16th at 11:30 a.m. in Horsburgh Gymnasium.
Saturday's matches will not follow a typical invitational format where there are first-, second- and third-place finishes in each weight class. Rather, the schedule will include wrestlers from CWRU, Defiance College, Muskingum University and Ohio Wesleyan University facing off solely for individual records.
Fans can follow all of the action with a live video webcast at https://athletics.case.edu/sports/wrest/live and live results at https://athletics.case.edu/sports/wrest/liveresults.
