The Chadron State College wrestling team is in action tonight in North Dakota, meeting Dickinson State in a dual. The Blue Hawks edged the Eagles in Chadron 21-18 two months ago, but injuries and illness are sending a much different CSC team to Dickinson.

Interim Head Coach Brett Hunter says 141-lb Leandro Arias and 174-pound Brett Klopp are likely done for the season, and he’s taking 7 backups north for tonight’s match to give the Eagles a man in every weight class.

The Eagles have a second match this week, hosting  Western State in an RMAC dual Saturday night. The Mountaineers are led by Elliot Copeland, ranked 2nd at 174…and Kyle Piat, 8th at 184.

CSC will have just one more dual after Western State…on the road against Colorado School of Mines in Golden next Wednesday…before hosting the NCAA D-II Super Region 4 Championship on Fri and Sat the 22nd and 23rd.
