Baylor Tops Perennial Power Bradley Central in Wrestling Opener

Baylor 37, Bradley Central 26. After just five good days of practice, the Baylor wrestling team began its season Tuesday with a 37-26 win over perennial state power Bradley Central in Duke Arena.

"I thought we showed a lot of heart at times, but this surely wasn’t one of our better performances," Baylor's new head coach Rex Kendle told "I thought we showed some guts in winning some of those close matches, but we’ve only practiced for about five days and we’re still trying to get in shape. We’re a long way from where we plan to be and we just hope to have all 14 of our starters in the lineup when it counts."

Baylor, 1-0, competes in the Cleveland Duals Saturday.
