The matches are designed to give the Eagles the feeling of making weight and live competition, with some incoming freshmen getting their first sense of collegiate action.
"Overall, I thought it was a good first effort," said head coach Teague Moore. "You can tell it was their first time to make weight, then wrestle, and I think our timing needs some improvement. But we got through the day injury free, so that's a good thing.
"Some of our freshmen came out fighting and I thought that was good. Sometimes your first time putting on the college singlet they can be a little nervous. But that didn't show today. They came out fighting."
American begins its new season on Sunday, Nov. 5 with dual matches at Campbell and with Eastern Michigan.
