The Lakehead University wrestling team heads to London, Ont. this weekend to take part in the OUA Wrestling Championships; hosted by the University of Western Ontario. The team has been training hard and is looking good going into the championships. It is a very experienced squad featuring 5th year wrestlers Nick Zuback, Dave Malo, Dave Muscat and Rachel Dean and 4th year wrestlers Brent Fryia, Trevor Manchester, and Matt Lawrence.

Katie Patroch is two-time, defending OUA Champion at 61 kg. Trevor Manchester is Lakeheadís only returning OUA Champion on the menís side; he has moved up a weight class to make room for Steve Raine who is coming off an injury (missed last season due to a knee injury). CIS silver medal winner Matt Lawrence has also moved up a weight class and will be looking at medalling at 57 kg. Brent Fryia is also a threat to medal as are the McCague sisters and Rachel Dean.
