#NextLevel: Happy Thanksgiving To Our College Wrestlers!

North Florida Matmen staff report

Just a couple of quick notes on this Thanksgiving morning…of all the things we do here, THIS is probably what I’m most consistently proud of. College kids don’t have a big fan base. It’s definitely a grind, and definitely a job, to have to stay on weight at the college level. They are graduated from high school, but they are not forgotten.

We will be back on Sunday night with an Iowa-Wisconsin recap. We will TRY not to editoralize against Chris Bono’s Badgers…it’s the one team on the schedule that it’s truly difficult for us.

Joseph Pearson
Joseph Pearson

Truett-McConnell 27, Huntingdon 26: At Cleveland GA on Monday night, the hosts ran out to a 16-0 lead before the Eagles roared back to make the dual exciting down the stretch. The dual was scored in TMU’s favor before Huntingdon’s Joseph Pearson (Ft Walton Beach ’17) secured a first-period fall, in 1 minute flat.

Kaleb Warner

UNC-Pembroke 20, Limestone 19: At Pembroke Tuesday, the hosts had just enough bonus points in the lowers to hold off their conference opponents, with extra points at 125, 141 and 149. The Braves’ Kaleb Warner (165) sustained a 12-8 loss at the hands’ of the Saints’ Garrett Beam.
