BUIES CREEK, N.C. -- After a months respite from dual matches, the Virginia Military Institute wrestling team heads to Buies Creek, N.C. for a trimatch with Southern Conference foe Campbell University. Also joining the Keydets and Camels will be North Carolina State University.

Action is slated for late Wednesday afternoon, with VMI taking on Campbell at 5 p.m. Match time for VMI versus NC State will be approximately 6:45 p.m.

Fans unable to make the trip to Buies Creek can follow the action through a live video link, available on the wrestling schedule on VMIKeydets.com.

Since 1978-79, when VMI began offering scholarships for wrestling, the Keydets are 8-2 all-time versus Campbell, but slipped in last season’s dual 27-15 at home. Last season’s meeting was the first time the two schools clashed since a 21-14 VMI win over the Camels at George Mason University in 2007-08.

The Wolfpack holds control of the series with VMI, winning five of the seven previous matches. Last season, the Wolfpack and VMI met at Cardinal Gibbons High School in Raleigh, N.C. for a quad match with Appalachian State University and Indiana University. NC State took the win over VMI 36-12.

VMI (0-2 overall, 0-0 SoCon) is in the middle of a busy January; by month’s end, the Keydets will have participated in nine events. One of the biggest items on the schedule for VMI is this coming weekend as the Keydets head to the Hampton Coliseum for the Virginia Duals, beginning on Friday morning.
