A dual with Manchester (Ind.) is set for Dec. 7 while an eastward excursion to the Washington & Lee (Va.) Duals concludes the pre-Christmas competition.

Ohio Northern will host their final home dual of the season when Muskingum drops by for a conference affair on Jan. 15. ONU grapplers will also compete in the Bud Whitehall Duals, the OAC Quad Meet, and the Wheaton (Ill.) Invitational during the month.

Back-to-back trips to Baldwin-Wallace on Feb. 2 and Feb. 8 will conclude the regular season.
