Hokie Wrestlers Ready For NCAA Tournament - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

Hokie Wrestlers Ready For NCAA Tournament

    Two weekends ago, the Virginia Tech wrestling team captured it's first ACC team title, setting the stage for what could be a school record finish at the NCAA tournament. A year ago two Hokies finished in the top eight, earning All-American status as part of an 11th place finish as a team. This season they hope to eclipse that with another school record finish. Pete Yates at 165 finished 5th last year and this will be his final go-round. The difference this year-depth--Virginia Tech qualified 10 wrestlers for nationals--one in every weight class. That kind of participation makes a high team score all the more possible. Action begins Thursday morning in De Moines, IA and continues through Saturday night.
