SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — The No. 6-ranked Augustana wrestling team continues action in open competition Saturday at the Dakota Wesleyan Open in Mitchell, S.D.
The Vikings had nine top-six finishers at last week’s Daktronics Open, including 165-pound champion Marcus Edgington.
The Vikings were picked third in the 2011-12 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Preseason Coaches’ Poll and sixth in the country by the Division II Wrestling Coaches Association.
Four Viking wrestlers — Nate Herda (141), Jason Jeremiason (133), Marcus Edgington (157) and Carl Serck (174) — are nationally ranked.
Augustana competes in one more open tournament before the dual season begins. The Vikings travel to the MSU Moorhead Open Dec. 3 before hosting a triangular with Northwestern (Iowa) and Dakota Wesleyan on Dec. 9.
