DIII action this weekend

A pair of events with DIII wrestlers are set to go off this weekend. First the UWW Junior/U23 National Championships take place in Omaha, Nebraska, from Friday to Sunday. Freestyle and Greco-Roman will be contested in each age group, and a good number of DIII wrestlers are already registered. Live Results | Event Schedule

The Adrian Invitational is Saturday as well. The five team event features the host Bulldogs along with Trine and three NAIA schools. This may be the only intercollegiate competition at a DIII school in the fall semester. The event will take place with no fans, though video and live results are available. Adrian hosted basketball games this past weekend where players from both teams wore masks in compliance with Michigan’s mask order for sports with close contact. This weekend’s event will be a challenge and possibly a model for how to host DIII wrestling events in 2021.
