MSU Northern Wrestlers Continue to Improve

The MSU Northern wrestling team lost it's opening dual of the season to Northern Idaho. Since then, it's been all wins on the schedule for the second ranked Lights.

Tyson Thivierge's team is off to Reno this weekend for the Reno Tournament of Champions. It will be the first action for the Lights since the Battle of the Rockies in Great Falls in which Northern swept all three duals it wrestled in back on December 6th against stiff competition.

After finishing in 3rd place at the NAIA nationals a season ago, the Lights say the focus is on getting better every time they step on the mat so they can finish even higher at this years national tournament on March 7th and 8th.

"That's what our coaches preach to us is never be satisfied and build each match, build each period, and build each weekend and on each performance and I think we've been doing a good job at that and need to keep the momentum going," Thivierge says.

"put one foot in front of the other, improve every time you step on the mat and every time you get the opportunity to compete in front of a crowd. It can be an empty gym, just improve. It's a long season and we're just working to peak at the right times," Lights 133 pounder Cameron Neiss remarks.
