Wrestling Notebook

Friday, November 15, 2013 - by B.B. Branton

Does Chattanooga wrestling coach Heath Eslinger have a Christmas Special for area wrestling fans.

Fifty dollars gets you a ticket to the UTC-Gardner Webb match, vale parking and an excellent four-course dinner with “dinner is served” by UTC wrestlers at 6:30 p.m. at the inaugural Taziki’s Candlelight Dinner Match.

If you bring seven of your closest friends a table for 8 is $400 and it all goes to help the UTC wrestling program.

“We wanted to do something different for our fans and I think a real nice dinner with tablecloths, our finest place settings and candles on each table, plus an important conference match with Gardner Webb will be a big hit,” said Eslinger.
