Plymouth State’s winter sports are well underway as both men’s and women’s indoor track have their teams set and look to compete in their first meet this coming Saturday at UMass Boston at the Reggie Lewis Center. The indoor track and field teams are a new addition to Plymouth State’s athletic program this year as the campus is buzzing with excitement to see what the athletes can do. The men’s and women’s ski teams are both beginning to train hard and are ready to start skiing as the ski areas are finally opening and making snow.

On Saturday the 21st, Plymouth State’s Men’s wrestling team took 11th place at the annual Doug Parker Invitational hosted by Springfield College.
