The University of Minnesota wrestling team held their first practice in their new facility in the Bierman Athletic Complex on the day after Thanksgiving.
The spacious wrestling room includes six full mat surfaces, a high ceiling, natural light from two large windows, a seating area for visitors, and a state-of-the-art sound and video system.
Overlooking the wrestling room is a new (nearly-completed) office space for the coaching staff, an athlete lounge, and a conference room.
Just off the wrestling room is a weight room for the team.
Minnesota hosts South Dakota State tomorrow at Maturi Pavilion at 1 pm.
