Hokies hold intrasquad wrestle-offs
Tech opens season next weekend in Salem
BLACKSBURG - The Virginia Tech wrestling squad held its annual Maroon & Orange intrasquad scrimmage Friday night inside Cassell Coliseum as the team continues to prepare for the season opener next weekend.

“We did okay tonight as a group,” head coach Kevin Dresser said. “It is hard to wrestle these intrasquad scrimmages. I felt the effort was there in most places. A few of our younger guys have done a poor job with their weight and it showed. Overall, we made progress tonight.”

The Hokies will open the 2013-14 season next weekend in Salem, taking on Hofstra Friday night and then hosting the Hokie Duals and Hokie Open Sunday. All three events will be held inside the Salem Civic Center.

Devin Carter will compete in the NWCA All-Star Classic Saturday (Nov. 2) in Fairfax, taking on Tony Ramos of Iowa.
