VESTAL, N.Y. - The Binghamton wrestling team is settling into its preseason training in advance of the team’s November 10 season-opening Jon Kaloust Open.

Second-year head coach Matt Dernlan returns six starters, including NCAA qualifier Cody Reed, to an otherwise young lineup that includes seven true freshmen. Dernlan’s recruiting class was ranked 14th in the nation by Amateur Wrestling News.

His Bearcats will host the newly-named Kaloust Open (formerly Bearcat Open) in the Events Center on November 10. The event, which will draw close to 500 competitors, is named in honor of former BU team member and Navy SEAL Jonathan Kaloust, who was tragically killed in May.

Watch Dernlan run the 2013-14 squad through a preseason workout here.
