RALEIGH, N.C. – NC State head coach Pat Popolizio has announced the 2013-14 wrestling schedule, his second season at the helm of the program.
“We are very excited about this upcoming season,” said Popolizio. “Our schedule features three of the most prestigious tournaments in the country. Additionally, we have a dual schedule that will allow us to see some of the best teams in the NCAA.
“Our goal every year is to prepare our athletes to be NCAA Champions and All-Americans. The competition we will face this season will achieve that.”
The Wolfpack opens its campaign hosting the annual Wolfpack Open on November 17, followed by the Wolfpack Duals against Gardner-Webb and UNC Pembroke on November 24.
NC State will then head to a pair of the top tournaments in the country, the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational (Dec. 6-7) and the Southern Scuffle (Jan. 1-2).
In dual meets at home this season, the Pack will entertain Campbell (Jan. 24), Virginia Tech (Jan. 26), North Carolina (Jan. 31), and Virginia (Feb. 9).
The Pack will also be facing three nationally ranked non-conference teams in dual meets, against Illinois (finished ninth last year) at the Northeast Duals, at Kent State (24th last year) on Jan. 19, and facing Northwestern (17th last year) in Durham on Feb. 22.
