CBU Wrestling team presents another year where the Lancers will be "taking it outside." "Take it Outside" is an event that CBU started in 2014, with their match against Stanford University and was extremely successful. CBU started this even in the hopes to expand the wrestling community and bring elite college wrestlers to the Inland Empire. It attracted over 2,000 people, beating the record for an outdoor college dual. Ever since "Take it Outside I" people have been long awaiting for this second dual. This event has gained coverage all over the wrestling community including USA Wrestling, NCAA, and The Press Enterprise.
Bringing back the "Take it Outside" event this year, CBU will be holding a dual against the Bakersfield Roadrunners on November 14, 2015 at 12 PM on their front lawn. This event not only is a dual between Bakersfield, but also an event to bring together the wrestling community. Last year, there were well- known guest martial artists like Urijah Faber and many food trucks, making it a full blown event. To top it off, "Take it Outside" is a free event. CBU hopes to come out even better this year with new special guest appearances (TBA).
CBU's extremely talent athletes have wont many championships over the year such as, National Collegiate Wrestling Association in 2011. Although Bakersfield is a tough team, CBU is excited and pumped to be giving it their all! We had the opportunity to create the outdoor event banners for CBU's wrestling event. We created three fairly large banners to be hung up outside the front lawn, where the match will be taking place. One with three of their athletes, another displaying the team they are versing, and one displaying the dates. We're excited to see the outcome of this dual, and hope for the best. Good luck Cal Baptist University!
