One of the seniors, Chad Haegle, went down with a season-ending injury but continues to support his teammates. “I’m around the team all the time, and I try to help any way I can,” said Haegle. 

“This team has a different mentality and brings a positive energy every day. That makes us perform better during matches,” said Collin Wickramaratna, a new wrestler for the team from Ursinus. 

The team is looking to gain another win to add to their 8-4 overall season totals. 

Looking ahead, the Golden Bears will compete on Feb. 29 at the NCAA Super Region l Championships.
