The Western Colorado University wrestling team’s season is underway. The Mountaineers held their annual Crimson and Slate intrasquad dual last Thursday in Gunnison and they hit the road this weekend for two competitions. The team faces the University of Nebraska at Kearney and Colorado Mesa today (Dec. 10), at 3 and 6 p.m. Both duals take place in Grand Junction and, as is becoming customary this year, spectators will not be permitted. The Mountaineers were picked to finish fourth in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference’s preseason coaches poll released Tuesday.
