UCO releases 2013-14 wrestling schedule


EDMOND — Six home duals highlight Central Oklahoma's 2013-14 wrestling schedule that was released Friday.


The 15-time national champion Bronchos of 32nd-year head coach David James open with the annual Bronze-Blue intrasquad match Oct. 30 before officially starting the season Nov. 3 at the Oklahoma City Open.


UCO goes to three open tournaments the first three weekends before making its dual debut at home against Missouri Baptist on Nov. 26.  The Bronchos also have home duals against Ouachita Baptist (Dec. 5), Truman State (Jan. 24), Lindenwood (Jan. 25), Central Missouri (Jan. 29) and Newman (Feb. 6).


Central will compete in the NWCA Division II National Duals Jan. 11-12 in Des Moines, Iowa and goes to Hays, Kan. Feb. 8 for the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Tournament.


NCAA Division II Super Regional action is set for March 1-2 at a site to be determined, with the national tournament slated for March 14-15 in Cleveland, Ohio.


The Bronchos have seven starters back from last year's fourth-place national tournament team, including national champion Cory Dauphin and All-Americans Casy Rowell, Jordan Basks, Chris Watson and Cody Dauphin.
