Hoosiers stay in-state for year's 1st dual meet

After a successful start to the season at the Michigan State Open on Sunday, the Hoosiers will get a chance to ride their momentum as they travel to Crawfordsville, Ind., to take on Wabash College.

While the Hoosiers have gained more national attention than Wabash, the Matmen are coming off a 4-1 start. IU coach Duane Goldman said he has been around wrestling too long to take a small-school opponent lightly.

“They always wrestle hard, and we know that they have some good individuals,” Goldman said.

An intriguing matchup will pit IU senior Nate Everhart and Wabash’s Rob Arnett against each other in the heavyweight division. Everhart comes in after winning the heavyweight title, posting an undefeated 4-0 performance at the MSU Open. Arnett is off to a 5-0 start to his senior campaign.

“As (Everhart) continues to wrestle good guys, he needs to be able to separate himself,” Goldman said.

Although the Hoosiers were able to take home three titles Sunday, Goldman knows that his team has things to correct for Wabash.

“We need to work on a couple technical aspects, but we really just need to get meaner and tougher,” Goldman said.
