PAINESVILLE, Ohio – The #23 Lake Erie College wrestling team will conclude the dual portion of the schedule with a road matchup with the #19 Wheeling Jesuit University Cardinals on Tuesday (Feb. 13) night at 7:00 PM.

"It's the last dual of the season so we are still resting some guys and getting others a final tune up before the super regional," said Storm head coach Kevin Hoogenboom. "It should be a great place to compete and we expect them to have a good crowd."
