Sixth ranked Pack Wrestling set for big weekend
Raleigh, NC WNCN
Once again the ACC Dual Wrestling Championship comes down to number 9 Virginia Tech and 6th ranked N-C State. It’s the third straight year the Hokies and Wolfpack have been in this position with Virginia Tech winning the past two meetings. Friday night at Reynolds Coliseum, the Wolfpack hope to end that streak.
“It’s kind of the final hump we need to get over,” said two-time defending ACC champion Kevin Jack. “We haven’t beaten them yet and this is my last year.”
A hostile atmosphere would certainly help. On Friday more than 21-hundred fans flocked to Reynolds Coliseum to watch N-C State take down rival North Carolina.
“You know we need as many fans as possible to get into Reynolds and pack that place,” urged N-C State head coach Pat Popolizio. “When it gets full there’s a lot of energy and it works to out advantage when we have a full crowd.”
Pack fans can double their wrestling pleasure this weekend. Number 2 ranked Ohio State invades on Sunday
