GREAT FALLS – It was Senior Night for the University of Providence wrestling team on Wednesday, as the Argos took on MSU-Northern. The Lights ended the regular season on a high note and came away with a 23-15 team victory.

“There were some big matches in there. We got some key victories. We put it away early, and that’s what we were looking to do,” said Northern head coach Tyson Thivierge. “We’ve been talking about momentum. Momentum has been a good tool for us all season long, so we’ve been talking a lot about that. We got it on our end this time. It’s good to finish the regular season like that, and now it’s onto the postseason.”

Up next for both wrestling teams will be the Cascade Conference Championships at the University of Providence on Feb. 15 and 16.
