The University of Scranton wrestling team will give fans on campus an opportunity to check out the team a few weeks before the season starts in a unique event held next to the Dionne Green outside the DeNaples Center on Saturday at noon.

The Royals will hold Grapple on the Green, a series of intrasquad bouts between team members that will serve two purposes. First, the bouts will help head coach Al Russomano and his staff determine the starting lineup heading into the season. And second, the event will showcase the wrestling team outdoors in the middle of campus, giving everyone a chance to watch the team in a unique and fun environment.

Wrestling will begin at noon and will feature approximately 15 bouts. Fans are invited to watch the entire event or stop by for a few matches, as admission is free. In the event of inclement weather, the event will move inside the Long Center.
