Thursday, December 6, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Northwestern's wrestling program is going through a youth movement.

"We'll have a lot of freshmen starting in the line up," said head coach Jim Moll. "They'll get thrown into the fire right away and we'll see how they adapt."

Northwestern usually six bouts per match last season....

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports
