Wyoming wrestling gets set for NCAA Championships beginning Thursday

One year after the NCAA Wrestling Championships were canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, a record-tying seven University of Wyoming wrestlers are set to compete in this year’s meet beginning Thursday morning in St. Louis.

The Cowboys enter this weekend’s meet after finishing fourth at the Big 12 Championships two weeks ago.

“I just think we need to use the momentum we got at the Big 12s and continue to believe in our capabilities,” UW head coach Mark Branch said earlier this week. “I think these guys have enjoyed the shorter season. I feel like they have a lot more energy than they typically have and we need to use that to our advantage.
