Wrasslin' is Wranked

Congratulations to head coach Kevin Dresser (yes, I had to look that up) and the Tech wrestling program for the first ranking in program history. The 15-1 Hokies are T-No. 13 in the latest Coaches Poll. Tech also has three individual wrestlers ranked in their respective Top 25s.

With the success last year's Iowa Hokieyes had in the NCAA Tournament and the impressive start by this year's team, its obvious this program is starting to get some serious talent.

I'm not a big fan of wrestling and the only time I've ever watched it was when I was forced to cover a wrestling dual in Ames, Iowa. Still, it's good to see another up-and-coming Tech non-rev sport, along with golf, the soccers and softball. The volleyball team even had a fast start this year. Just more evidence that moving to the ACC has helped Hokie sports across the board.
