Their last action against an opponent was February 8 against Loras in the Iowa Conference Finals, but the Central wrestling team is not worried about the long period of time between their regular season finale and their upcoming NCAA Division III regional tournament on March 2. In fact, Coach Eric Van Kley said that when he made the schedule, he did so with one purpose in mind. The Central interim Athletic Director also said that even though they aren’t facing any opponents during that time, the matches in practice that his athletes wrestle against each other are equivalent if not more than the amount of competition they face in a real dual. The regional tournament takes place a week from Saturday in Dubuque at 9:00 a.m.
