CHADRON, Neb. -- Chadron State College wrestlers will be in Pueblo, Colorado, on Thursday evening for a dual with Colorado State University-Pueblo at 5 p.m. The Eagles' final road dual of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference schedule pits them against the nation's 11th-ranked team, which features four ranked individuals.
This will be the conference opener for the ThunderWolves, who enter the contest with a 3-1 dual record. In their first dual of the season, Pueblo defeated the nation's No. 1 team, Nebraska-Kearney, then ranked second, by a 31-12 margin on December 15. Two days later the team defeated Minnesota State 31-11 in Las Vegas, and fell 16-20 to eighth-ranked Pitt-Johnstown, which is now ranked fourth. Also in Vegas, the ThunderWolves downed NCAA Division III No. 11 Coe College 27-15.
Ranked wrestlers for CSU-Pueblo include No. 4 D'Andre Brumfield, at 133 pounds, No. 9 Tarrence Williams at 184, No. 10 Haszell West at 197, and Division II's No. 4 heavyweight Gavin Nye. All four are undefeated so far in dual action this season. Additionally, PTGarcia at 141 is a two-time NCAA qualifier. The ThunderWolves' 174-pounder, Preston Lauterbach, was a 2017 NJCAA national champion, and a pair of transfers, Jasiah Williams and Isaiah Diggs, were NJCAA All-Americans in 2018 at Clackamas Community College, at 149 and 157 pounds, respectively.
CSC is 3-3 in head-to-head action, with a 2-2 RMAC record. Less than a week prior to Thursday's showdown, they defeated New Mexico Highlands 25-21 and lost to Adams State 12-28. Both matches were at the opponents' campuses.
