BUENA VISTA, Va. — Southern Virginia University head wrestling coach Logan Davis today announced the team's 2018-19 season schedule.
"I am excited about the new competition we will be facing this season. We will be wrestling good individuals in every match we attend," said Coach Davis. "We will see teams both inside and outside of our region. I'm looking forward to the opportunities to build on last season making more happen this year."
The season opens on the road for Southern Virginia on Nov. 1 at Alderson Broaddus, who the Knights defeated last season, 27-23. The team will travel to compete in the Ned McGinley Invitational Nov. 3, followed by back-to-back matches against Averett University.
Following the road trip, the Knights return for their home opener against nearby-foe Washington & Lee University on Nov. 16, the first of three matches in the 2018-19 season.
The Knights will compete for the first time in the prestigious Lycoming Duals Nov. 11 and Nov. 12, an invite-only tournament with a number of ranked programs.
The last home match of the season will be on Jan. 30 against Ferrum College.
The regular season will wrap-up at the Newberry University Open on Feb. 2, before the Knights head into postseason tournaments.
