HAMPTON, Va. - The Virginia Cavaliers, besieged by injuries, fell to 23rd- ranked Purdue today at the Virginia Duals Wrestling meet in Hampton, Va. Jim Harshaw (Seneca Valley/Cranberry Township, PA) was the lone winner for the Cavaliers as he scored a 7-6 decision over Mickey Griffin at the 150-pound bout.
Four of the Cavaliers' starters did not compete tonight due to various injuries, but Coach Lenny Bernstein predicts that they will be healthy for the next competition, the Virginia State Meet next weekend at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Va. The competition begins Friday, January 16 and continues Saturday, January 17. The Cavaliers are the defending state champions.
