Twenty-two wrestlers from Baker competed in the Mizzou Open, which consisted of two divisions: freshman/sophomore and open. All but three Baker wrestlers competed in the freshman/sophomore division.

The Wildcats will take a break in the action for Thanksgiving and finals then finish the first part of the season on Dec. 12 at the Loper Open at the University of Nebraska-Kearney before heading into the Christmas break.
