LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - Binghamton junior 125-pound David White went a perfect 3-0 to claim an individual title at the Lock Haven Cradle Gear Invitational Sunday at the Thomas Fieldhouse. Joining White on the podium was sophomore 174-pound Jack McKeever, who won five of six matches to place third. The Bearcats sent 12 men to the event and finished sixth out of 10 teams.
White opened with a 13-2 major decision in the quarterfinals and then earned a 1-0 win over second-seeded Mike Soria of Buffalo. In the finals, third-seeded White handled top-seeded Sean Boylan of Bloomsburg, 7-1. He raised his overall record to 13-6.
McKeever rattled off four straight wins after losing his only match in the quarters. He began with a third-period pin of Gordon Boliq of Franklin & Marshall. McKeever, seeded third, then posted wins of 6-0 and 4-1 to reach the third-place match. There, he beat Brett Stein of Gardner-Webb 6-4. McKeever lifted his season record to a team-best 19-7.
Binghamton is off until January 10 when the Bearcats will head to New York City to face Columbia. The BU wrestling program and Alumni Association will host a post-match alumni gathering after the 7 p.m. dual.
