Wrestling

The Maroons have a pair of events lined up for the weekend. They will participate in the 55th-annual Ken Kraft Midlands Championships on Friday and Saturday, while also hosting Saturday's six-team Chicago Duals in the Henry Crown Field House.

The Midlands Championships features many of the best wrestlers from across all divisions of the NCAA facing off. Last year's field was the largest ever in Midlands history and featured 71 ranked wrestlers, including 38 that were ranked in the top-10 at their respective weight classes.

In last year's Chicago Duals, the Maroons went a perfect 3-0 with team victories over Trine University (38-9), University of Dubuque (26-15) and Manchester University (33-16). Kahlan Lee-Lermer, Jason Lynch and Michael Sepke won all three of their matches on the day.
