NC State Wrestling to Host First Outdoor Practice
Fans and students invited to watch and interact with coaches and wrestlers in the Brickyard
RALEIGH, N.C. – NC State students with a break between classes on Tuesday, October 8, will have a unique way to pass the time, as the Wolfpack wresting team will hold an outdoor practice in the Brickyard. Workouts will be held in one-hour segments from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. between the Atrium and the NC State Bookstore.
“We are excited to showcase our program in this unique way,” said second-year head coach Pat Popolizio. “The recent events with Olympic wrestling being restored has taught the wrestling community to market more creatively.
“We want to have a strong student fan base here at NC State. The outdoor practice is designed to help build that fan base, and show off the future of our program.”
T-shirts and posters will be given away throughout the day, and fans will get the chance to ask questions and learn about the sport of wrestling with both the coaching staff and the wrestlers.
In the event of rain, the outdoor practice will be canceled but members of the team and coaching staff will distribute posters and t-shirts inside the Atrium. GoPack.com will provide information if weather becomes an issue.
The Pack is concluding its preseason workouts, and this outdoor event will serve as a transition heading into the season, which begins November 17 with the Wolfpack Open.
