Season Outlook:
The Centenary University Wrestling team will be young but talented this year. Three national qualifiers, including 2x All-American Etiini Udott, graduated from last year’s squad. Coach Garriques noted, “You can’t just replace that type of leadership; it has to be formed and molded. That takes time. I’m excited to see who steps up this year to lead this team. If we come together and have good leadership, we can be back contending for that National Championship. Time will tell.”
