?We are proud to provide a live video of the first women?s college wrestling dual in the history of our state,? OCU athletic director Jim Abbott said. ?We are excited to have this new feature on our web site. This is the next step in the development of our new web site.?
The Stars made their debut in women?s wrestling when they competed in the Sunkist International Open on Oct. 27. LeAnn Barney and Ashley Sword became OCU?s first placers ever in an open tournament.
OCU coach Archie Randall said he anticipates between 1,500 and 2,000 spectators for the duals Saturday.
?This is our first home dual meet ever, and we are wrestling the top team in the nation,? Randall said. ?If you want to be the best, you have to wrestle against the best. Our goal is to knock them off, and to be as competitive as possible. We want to show the rest of the nation that OCU wrestling is for real.?
