UNI beats Air Force for third straight dual win

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The University of Northern Iowa downed fellow Western Wrestling Conference foe Air Force 24-15 Sunday afternoon in the West Gym. The win marks the Panthers third in a row, and second consecutive WWC victory.

"Both teams fought very hard today, but I thought we were more aggressive as a whole" UNI head coach Brad Penrith said. "We worked hard throughout the dual and really battled for positions. It was nice to get seven of the 10 matches, but now we need to turn our focus to preparing for the West Regional."

UNI (10-12, 4-3 WWC) will now head to the NCAA West Regional Championships in hopes of claiming their 25th straight West Regional title on March 6 in Brookings, S.D.
