CORVALLIS, Ore. - The Oregon State wrestling team will officially open its 2011-12 season Nov. 12 and 13 when the Beavers participate in the Best of the West Tournament on the campus of Southern Oregon.
With the start of the season less than two weeks away, let's take a look at the team's upper weight classes: 165, 174, 184, 197 and the heavyweight class.
Unlike the lower weights, the Beavers have only one NCAA Championships returner in the upper weight classes. That is Clayton Jack, who has lettered three years for Oregon State and made three visits to the NCAA Championships.
The coaching staff has stated that many of the upper weight class starters have yet to be decided and will depend upon how individuals do at Southern Oregon.
We caught up with assistant coach Troy Steiner to assess the team at its upper weight classes. Check the video below to learn more.
