WASHINGTON, D.C. – American University will pay tribute to its three seniors and try to cap its regular season with a victory on Saturday night, as the Eagles host Ohio University at 7 p.m. at Bender Arena.
Eckhart has won two of his last three bouts; Kasunic needs four victories to become only the eighth Eagle with 100 in his career; and Dempsey earned his 60th career victory on Thursday during AU's 38-3 win at George Mason.
American comes into the match with a 7-6 dual-match record. In addition to Kasunic (10th at 197) and Dempsey (26th at heavyweight), the Eagles also have 133-pounder Josh Terao (9th) and 149-pounder Michael Sprague (19th) as nationally ranked wrestlers at this point in the season.
Kasunic could also hit the 30-win plateau for the season on Saturday, making him the 13th wrestler at AU to hit that mark.
The Bobcats are 4-6 overall this season and are 2-4 in the Mid-American Conference. Junior Cameron Kelly is 20-3 and leads Ohio U. in victories, ranking 16th at 133 pounds.
