If a college wrestling meet can figure into your Valentine’s Day plans, New Mexico Highlands will provide everything but the candlelight and wine.
Saturday’s dual meet with Colorado State-Pueblo will be the last chance to see the Highlands wrestling team at home this season. First match begins at 7 p.m. at the Wilson Complex.
In recent weeks, the Cowboys , coached by Doug Moses, have battled some of the top-rated squads in NCAA Division II.
On Feb. 5, the team narrowly lost (25-20) to ninth-ranked Adams State. On the following night, Highlands grappled to a 19-19 tie with No. 13 Chadron State.
And on Wednesday, the Cowboys lost 37-3 at No. 5 Western State in Gunnison, Colo. Tyler Davey picked up an individual win at 141 lbs., a 16-11 decision over Daren Hockett.
