SVU Hosts Turkey Bowl Meet

BUENA VISTA, Va. Southern Virginia Wrestling welcomed three teams to the first ever Turkey Bowl Meet. Eighteen wrestlers from the four schools competed in six different brackets during the meet. The schools included Longwood, Radford and VMI.

"I think it was a successful day," said Head Coach Nate Casperson. "We didn't get a winner in any of the brackets, but the experience we got was great. We will see a couple of these teams again in the conference tournament, so it's good to see where we stand, and where we can get better."
