The Old Dominion wrestling team will finish the regular season tonight when they travel to Fairfax, VA to face Colonial Athletic Association rival George Mason at 7:00 p.m. The Monarchs are 6-10 on the year, 2-5 in the conference.
ODU has lost four of their last five and will look to build some momentum tonight heading into the CAA Tournament on March 7th and 8th. The Patriots have also stuggled as of late, dropping their last five dual contests. They are 2-12 on the campaign and 2-5 in the league. However, they are 9-4 lifetime against the Monarchs.
Leading the way for Old Dominion will be senior 174-pounder Ben Summerlin (Lynchburg, VA) who is 22-5 this year with a team-high 11 pins and is ranked fourth in conference. Junior heavyweight Derrell Lorthridge (Wilmington, DE) leads the team with a 25-5 mark and is ranked second in the CAA while freshman Adam Wright (Bridgewater, VA), ranked fifth in the league, carries a 24-8 record in his rookie campaign at 184-pounds.
