The Chadron State College wrestling team practices in full beginning October 10, which means the schedule is mostly set for 2021-22 competition.
The calendar shows 12 duals involving Chadron State, six open meets, and two neutral-site duals to be hosted by CSC. The Eagles will host 10 duals total this year, which is up from two last season and seven the year prior.
It begins at home, on November 1, as Northeastern Junior College of Colorado comes to Chadron for a dual.
The following week, an amateur open meet at Colorado School of Mines is on tap for November 7, and then on November 11 the Eagles return to the Devaney Center in Lincoln, to compete against the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Two more open meets – one in Kearney on November 20 and another at Wyoming on November 27 – cap off the month.
Beginning December 3, with a dual at York College, the Eagles remain in the state of Nebraska for six weeks. They hop over to Fremont, on December 4, for the Midland University Open, and host a series of five duals at home on December 11.
The University of Nebraska-Kearney, Augustana University, and Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference associate member San Francisco State University all converge on the Chicoine Center that Saturday morning, for a partial round-robin of duals. CSC meets UNK in the opening session, while the other two teams dual. At 10:30 SFSU and Kearney meet up, while the Eagles battle Augustana. Finally at noon, Chadron State and San Francisco clash.
Following the CSC duals is a month off, before CSC hosts Adams State University and New Mexico Highlands on January 13 and 14, respectively.
The Eagles finally leave the state again January 20-21 for RMAC duals at Western Colorado University and Colorado Mesa University.
They host two more RMAC duals – January 29 versus Colorado State University-Pueblo, and February 6 against Mines, with a trip to the Morningside College Open, in Sioux City, Iowa, sandwiched in-between on February 5.
From there the team will send some of its members to the Rocky Mountain Open in Golden, Colorado, on February 13, while prepping for the postseason.
The NCAA Super Region 6 Championships are slated for February 26, in Grand Junction, Colorado, while the ultimate prize, the NCAA Division II Championships, is in St. Louis beginning March 11.
