The North Carolina wrestling team's home dual meet against Virginia Tech, slated for Friday, is postponed due to COVID-19-related protocols within the UNC program, the team announced on Thursday. The team is working to reschedule the meet for a later date.
This postponement comes two weeks after the wrestling team announced it was unable to host Campbell in its season-opening dual meet for similar reasons. In between those postponements, the Tar Heels faced Gardner-Webb in a 45-0 win in Chapel Hill on Sunday, Jan. 10.
North Carolina's next dual meet is scheduled to be at Duke on Friday, Jan. 22.
UNC announced its first confirmed COVID-19 cluster on Wednesday in Carmichael Residence Hall. That cluster involved students who lived in the residence hall over winter break, according to a cluster notification posted to the Carolina Together website.
