LEXINGTON, Va. – Entering his fourth season at the helm of the program, VMI wrestling head coach Chris Skretkowicz announced the team’s 2017-18 schedule Tuesday afternoon in Lexington, Virginia.

The Keydets will compete four times at Cormack Hall this season, including three duals before the 2018 calendar year. VMI opens the season at home with a Southern Conference dual against perennial league power Chattanooga on Saturday, Nov. 4, and will later host Franklin & Marshall (Dec. 2) and SoCon foe Gardner-Webb (Dec. 8) during the month of December.

“I really like this year’s schedule and I think it presents our team with some great challenges during the course of the year,” Skretkowicz said. “The conference duals will be tough as always, but we have scheduled some teams out of the league that will be good matches and help prepare us for SoCon competition.”

During fall semester, VMI will participate in a number of open tournaments including the Southeast Open in Roanoke (Nov. 5), the Binghamton Open (Nov. 12), the Keystone Classic (Nov. 19) and the Lock Haven Classic (Dec. 28).

After competing at the W&L Open next door on Jan. 6, the Keydets will host their final home event of the season with two duals against Davidson and Clarion on Jan. 13 at Cormack Hall.

Following a few duals on the road, VMI heads to the All-Academy Championships hosted this year by The Citadel on Jan. 27 in Charleston, South Carolina.

Prior to the SoCon Championships in early March, the Keydets will face George Mason in Fairfax, Virginia, on Feb. 18.

The Keydets look to qualify several individuals for the NCAA Wrestling Championships, which run Mar. 15-17 at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
