The 2021 portion of this strange season kicked off yesterday as Wartburg and Olivet took on a pair of in-state Division I teams for their first competitions of the year. Wartburg took a pair of matches from the Cyclones, while Olivet came up empty against the Chippewas.
Zane Mulder and Kyle Briggs won at 165 and 174 for Wartburg. Mulder won in his return to ISU where he wrestled the past two seasons before transferring.
According to their schedules, both teams have some time off with Wartburg starting the ARC schedule January 23rd and Olivet hosting the MIAA Championship January 30th.
Central Michigan 44, Olivet 0 (go to 1:26:43 of the embedded video to see the 285 matchup that lasted just 1:05 but had plenty of excitement)
