"We wrestled well for our first matches on the season, and for some of us, first matches ever," Knights coach Nick Burklund said. "Yes, I think we expected to do a little better, but seventh was our best finish as a team at this tournament.

"For a first tournament, this is a tough one with a lot of tough Wisconsin schools who had some matches under their belt. We need this type of competition to make us better through the season and help us reach our goals."
