The Wrestle-Offs is an intrasquad meet that helps determine the starting lineup for the upcoming season.
It also gives fans the opportunity to get their first glimpse at the 2011-12 Huskies.
“There should be some hotly-contested matches for positions in our lineup,” said head coach Ryan Ludwig. “It will be great to see all the Huskie fans in the stands and have them meet the coaches and the team.”
Though official matchups for Saturday will not be set until later in the week, the competition for starting spots is highly competitive in a few weight classes, including at 141 and 157. The meet will also be the first opportunity for fans to see some members of the highly touted 2011 recruiting class, which was ranked 28th in the nation by Wrestling USA magazine.
After the meet, fans will have the opportunity to interact with the Huskie wrestling team in a meet-and-greet event at Pizza Pro’s, located at 1205 W. Lincoln Hwy. in DeKalb.
