Episode 20 of the ODU Wrestling Monarch Matcast features Associate Head Coach Mike Dixon as we recap the summer of wrestling at Old Dominion.

Dixon was recently at the National Wrestling Coaches Association Convention in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and we'll discuss some of the topics relevant to Old Dominion that came out of the convention.

Some of those topics include wrestling's overall push for greater APR scores, a potential shift in the season and how the National Duals discussion impacts the program.

Dixon will also recap some of the academic success the program has had in recent years, how the program has changed its focus on recruiting and we'll wrap with some discussion about the schedule, home duals, alumni events and of course, the incoming class of freshmen and transfers.
