Breese Announces 2014-15 Wrestling Schedule
Buena Vista head wrestling coach Jeff Bresse has announced the schedule for his first season at the helm of the Beavers.
He will make his head coaching debut when his squad opens the season at the Luther College Open in Decorah on Saturday, November 15. The team's first dual meet of the season takes place just days later on November 20 when it also opens the home portion of the schedule with a non-conference dual against Concordia (Neb.).
Breese has tried to bolster his schedule right away and proof of that comes late in November when the team will send half of its roster to compete at the Northern Illinois Duals in Dekalb, Ill. BVU will take on the host Huskies (Division I) before wrapping up against Tiffin University (Division II). That same day, another half of the roster will take part in the Concordia (Wis.) Open.
The Beavers will begin their Iowa Conference slate by hosting Coe College on Wednesday, December 3 at 7:00pm before hosting the annual BVU on Saturday, December 6.
Another highlight of the schedule comes during Christmas break on December 21, when the team will take a trip out west to Las Vegas, Nev., and compete in the Desert Duals.
This year's portion of the IIAC Duals in which the Beavers will take part in will be hosted by Wartburg College in Waverly on Saturday, January 24.
The final home match of the year comes against Loras College on January 16, 2015. The end of the regular season comes on February 13 at Luther College.
Following a few weeks of preparation, the Beavers will then take part in the NCAA Central Regional Championships on February 28 in Dubuque. The top three overall placewinners at each weight will then qualify to the NCAA Championships on March 13 & 14 at Hershey, Pa.
