The Case Western Reserve University wrestling team will travel to Chicago, Illinois for the 2018 University Athletic Association Championships, hosted by the University of Chicago on Saturday, February 10th.
The Spartans will open competition at 12:00 p.m. ET against New York University. CWRU will then face host Chicago, ranked 23rd in the latest NCAA Division III dual meet poll, either immediately following their match against NYU (should the Spartans fall to the Violets) or in the last match of the day (should the Spartans defeat NYU). Each match will begin approximately 15 minutes following the completion of the previous contest. Competition is expected to conclude by 5:00 p.m. ET.
Following the conclusion of the match, there will be an awards ceremony, as the All-UAA teams, along with the Most Outstanding Wrestler, Rookie of the Year, and Coaching Staff of the Year, will be named.
