West Point wrestlers honor fellow cadet who was killed in accident

West Point wrestlers will honor a teammate killed in a vehicle rollover accident last year by hosting a match at his former high school in New Jersey.

The U.S. Military Academy wrestling team will host Lehigh University in an NCAA Division I match at West Orange High School Friday night to honor the memory of Christopher Morgan.

Morgan died in June 2019 after a tactical vehicle carrying cadets overturned during summer training exercises on the academy’s grounds. The 22-year-old had been a standout wrestler in high school and at West Point. He was scheduled to graduate this year.
