Wrestlers Vinson, Lister among top-15 in Intermat Preseason Rankings

Intermat rankings

Contact: John Hartrick (

VESTAL, N.Y.—Intermat has released its preseason rankings and a pair of Binghamton wrestlers are among the top individuals at their weight classes.  Junior 149-pound Donnie Vinson is positioned eighth and senior 157-pound Justin Lister is 12th.

Vinson went 26-6 last winter and repeated as an NCAA qualifier.  He was 21-1 in duals with one of those victories coming over national champion Kyle Dake of Cornell.

Lister jumped up a weight midseason and captured the 165-pound title at the CAA Championship to make a return trip to the NCAAs.  The 2010 All-American went 23-8 overall.
