ROME -- The Shorter University Wrestling Hawks will welcome Cumberland University for a dual meet to begin at 8 pm on Tuesday.

This will be the first dual for the Hawks this season, with a few open tournaments under their belts as they begin the 2012 campaign.

Shorter will enter wrestlers in nine weight classes.

Brandon Dyer will compete at 149. In his last time out, at 141, he would advance to the third-place match at the Patriot Open.

Gabriel Bird and T.J. Duncan will represent the Hawks in the 157 and 165 classes; the two were crowned co-champions at the Patriot Open at the 157-pound weight class.

Chris Rowland took the 285-class championship at the same tournament, while also having a runner up finish at the Citadel Open earlier this season.

This will be the last sporting event on campus before the Thanksgiving break, with wrestling returning to action on December 1 at the Cavalier Duals in Albany, Ga.
