“It’s an exhibition match, and we played every kid,” UW head coach Chad Callihan said in a release. “It was good for us to get everyone in. We had five kids that have never played in a match for us, so we got them all time. It gives us a ton to see and work on. I was actually somewhat pleased with what we did tonight."

Wyoming opens the regular season Friday when they play at Colorado in the Buffs Invitational.
