VESTAL, N.Y. -- As the season-opening meet draws near, the Binghamton wrestling team continued to jockey for starting positions during Monday's "wrestle-offs" in the West Gym practice room.
Bearcats begin competition on Saturday with the Binghamton/Brute
Open, held at the Events Center. The double-elimination tournament
is the first wrestling event to be staged at the Events Center
in the building's five-year history. Individuals from 18 teams
will compete: American, Army, Boston, Bloomsburg, Brown, Cornell,
Columbia, Cortland, Drexel, Harvard, Princeton, Rutgers, Sacred
Heart, Springfield, Shippensburg, Western New England, Hofstra
and Binghamton. The BU wrestlers will compete unattached.
Binghamton returns eight starters and 16 letterwinners from last year's team that went 13-12, placed sixth in the CAA and advanced two wrestlers (Josh Patterson and Kyle Fried) to the NCAA Championship. Patterson is ranked 18th in the country at 184 pounds in the latest Intermat/NWCA national poll.
