Wrestling drops tough home opener to No. 8 Northwestern

After kicking off its season with a bang with big wins over California Baptist and Cal State, the Cardinal wrestling team (2-1) faced a stiff test against No. 8 Northwestern (1-0) in its home opener at Burnham Pavilion. Although the team hung around with the Wildcats in a back-and-forth meet, Northwestern cleaned up in the 141-, 149- and 157-pound decisions to claim a hard-fought 21-13 victory.
