LEXINGTON, Va. – The VMI wrestling team announced recently that it will hold its annual intrasquad scrimmage on Thursday, October 28 at 6 p.m. in New Barracks on Post.
The Red Team will battle the Black Team and the bout will be scored just like a regular dual match. Several preliminary matches were held Tuesday to determine the matchups for Thursday’s event.
“We came up with this idea, hoping to bring excitement to the Corps of Cadets about our wrestling program,” said head coach Jim Gibson. “The unique atmosphere of New Barracks will without a doubt provide an extra level of intensity to the Intra-squad. Our wrestlers are excited to put on display all the work they have put in over the last eight weeks. Inevitably, by putting on a good show in front of their peers will help us continue to draw attendance at our home matches.”
The Keydets were picked sixth in a pre-season poll of Southern Conference coaches released Thursday. View the Socon story here:
