Bearcats go 1-3 at CAA Duals

FAIRFAX, Va. - Binghamton wrestling went 1-3 at the 11-team Colonial Athletic Association Friday and Saturday on the campus of George Mason. The Bearcats (6-9) defeated Old Dominion, 22-21, and suffered defeats to Drexel (31-13), James Madison (19-16) and nationally-ranked Hofstra (38-6).

Sophomore 141-pound Josh Ruff (Bainbridge, N.Y./Bainbridge-Guilford) enjoyed a stellar weekend, winning all four of his matches to remain unbeaten in dual matches.
