On Episode 16 of the ODU Wrestling Monarch Matcast, we get a rundown with Associate Head Coach Mike Dixon about the upcoming events for wrestlers in the Monarch program and a dose of some upcoming events.

The first big event upcoming is the Takedown Club Golf Tournament on Friday, May 1 at Sewell's Point Golf Course in Norfolk. Coach Dixon and host Jason Bryant talk about some of their tips on how to execute a sand save.

Coach Dixon also discusses the activity in freestyle and Greco-Roman as some coaches and athletes prepare for the U.S. Open in Las Vegas. We'll also touch on head coach Steve Martin's induction into the Virginia Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, how the incoming recruits did at the post-season tournaments and how tough it's going to be to replace someone like Tristan Warner, a two-time Elite 89 Award winner.
