The season begins on November 2 as UWSP hosts the Pointer Open in Quandt Fieldhouse. A week later, the Pointers travel to Oshkosh for another open meet before returning home to open the conference season. UW-Whitewater is the opponent for the first conference duals of the year at 7:00 p.m. in Berg Gym on Nov. 16.

UWSP will head to UW-Oshkosh and UW-Parkside to round out the November slate. In December, the Pointers open with the Candlewood Suites Duals in La Crosse before conference duals at UW-Platteville and UW-Eau Claire close out the calendar year.

The Pointers begin 2018 with home duals against Cornell and Luther College on Jan. 6 in Quandt. The next week, UWSP will trek to Williamsport, Pa., for the Budd Whitehall Duals. The Pointers will also go to the Pete Willson Invitational in Wheaton, Ill., in January.

The final home dual of the year will be on Feb. 2 against UW-La Crosse at 7:00 p.m. in Berg Gym. That will be the final tune up before the WIAC Championships in Whitewater on Feb. 9.

One final non-conference dual at Augsburg on Feb. 16 precedes the Midwest Regional and NCAA Championships.

Last year, senior Logan Hermsen (Amherst Junction, WI/Amherst) won his second-straight national championship at 165. Sophomore Donny Ralston (Ladysmith, WI/Bruce) earned All-American accolades with a sixth-place finish at heavyweight. As a team, the Pointer went 2-12 with a win over UW-Oshkosh during WIAC action.
