ODU08: Recapping Chattanooga and a conversation with ODU Director of Athletics Dr. Wood Selig22/12/2014 Duração: 29min
Today on Episode 8 of the ODU Wrestling Monarch Matcast, we'll recap the Monarchs win over Chattanooga and talk with Old Dominion University Director of Athletics Wood Selig about his thoughts regarding the wrestling program and how it fits within the infrastructure of ODU sports. The Old Dominion University wrestling program picked up a quality 25-12 win over Chattanooga on December 20 at the Ted Constant Convocation Center. Chattanooga, a longtime power in the Southern Conference, was ranked nationally by the USA Today/NWCA Division I Coaches Poll all season until they dropped matches to Purdue and North Carolina a week prior. Regardless of the ranking, the Mocs have been a traditionally strong program. With the bout starting at 165 pounds, it meant we'd have the Warner brothers -- no, not those Warner Brothers -- but Tristan and T.C. Warner bookending the dual. Tristan Warner started off strong and remained unbeaten on the year with a quick fall over Garrett Alexander just 90 seconds into the match
