Fans will have seven opportunities to catch the Vikings at home
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — After an impressive postseason showing last March, the Augustana Wrestling team is excited to announce the schedule for the upcoming 2019-20 wrestling season. The schedule features eight Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) duals, five non-conference duals, five opens, and seven opportunities for fans to see the Vikings wrestle at home in the Elmen Center.
The Vikings will start their season on the road at the Jimmie Open in Jamestown, N.D. on November 2. Following the opener, the Vikings will hit the road for three more opens and a dual against North Dakota State before returning to Sioux Falls for the home opener.
December 20 will be the first opportunity for fans to catch the Vikings at home, in the Elmen Center, where they will square off in two duals against Nebraska-Kearney and Parkside. Tickets for home duals can be purchased here.
After a couple of duals to start January, the Vikings will start NSIC duals on January 9 against Northern State at home. After Northern state, the Vikings will wrestle eight more opponents (seven of whom are conference foes) to finish off the regular season. The last home dual will be against Minot State on February 8 and the last dual of the season will take place in St. Cloud, Minn. against St. Could State on Feb. 19.
After the regular season, Augustana will host the NCAA Super Region 5 at the Sioux Falls Arena on February 29.
