BU wrestling powers past Columbia on road 29-13
Bearcats (8-3) win seven of 10 bouts in front of large alumni crowd

NEW YORK -- Binghamton wrestling (8-3) won seven of 10 bouts, including two by pin and two more major decisions to power past Columbia (3-4) 29-13 Saturday afternoon from University Gymnasium. The win delighted a strong contingent of Bearcats alumni and supporters, who attended the match and a reception afterwards.

The Bearcats' three nationally-ranked wrestlers all won in convincing fashion. Sophomore ninth-ranked Nate Schiedel (19-4 overall, 8-2 duals) posted a 19-7 major decision at 184 pounds in the day's second match. Sophomore 149-pound Donnie Vinson, ranked 18th, remained perfect in duals with a 12-2 major (14-2 overall, 11-0 duals). Junior No. 19 Justin Lister (8-2) made quick work of his opponent at 165 pounds with a pin in 1:54 - his second straight win after bumping up a weight class to start the second semester.

Sophomore 125-pound newcomer Derek Steeley made a forceful impact in his first match as a Bearcat, posting a pin in 1:57. Steeley is a former Oklahoma state high school champion who transferred to BU this month.

Junior 157-pound Matt Kaylor (16-5, 10-1) rolled to a 12-5 win and senior Anwar Goeres (11-3, 6-2) returned from an injury that sidelined him for nearly a month and earned a 9-3 decision at 141.

Binghamton competes at the CAA Duals in Virginia next Saturday, facing Hofstra, Rider and Drexel.
