After coming in at no. 25 to get ranked for the first time last month before climbing to no. 20 then no. 18, Little Rock has slid up another spot in the NWCA Division I Men’s Wrestling Coaches Poll, as announced by the National Wrestling Coaches Association on Tuesday. Read the full NWCA release here.
“Looking at our season, when we remain consistent, good things happen,” said head coach Neil Erisman. “We have steadily climbed the rankings in all areas and it’s because of consistency. As long as we remain on that path, we will be able to accomplish our end-of-the-year goals.”
