WEST POINT, N.Y. -- It will be a short turn around for the Virginia Military Institute wrestling team, which competed on Wednesday evening against George Mason, before heading north to West Point, N.Y. for the 2013 All-Academy Championships, hosted by the United States Military Academy.

In addition to VMI and Army, the 19th annual All-Military Championships will see grapplers from the Air Force, Naval and Coast Guard Academies, The Citadel, Merchant Marine Academy and Norwich University.

Fans unable to make the trip to the Championships can follow all of the action through a tournament central, which also features key information such as directions and area hotels/restaurants. Ticket prices for the event have been set at $6 for adults and $4 for youth and seniors.

Doors for the event, being held at Gillis Field House, open at 9 a.m. with preliminary action set to kickoff at 10 a.m. The championship round is scheduled to begin tentatively at 4 p.m.

Brackets for the competition will be released on the tournament central page Friday afternoon.

Last season, VMI finished fifth among the eight teams at the championship, which were hosted in 2012 by the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. Three Keydets reached the third-place, however, none of the three remain on the roster, losing two, Matthew Brock and David Yost, to graduation.
