Wrestling team drops final match at Virginia DualsTweet
Binghamton wrestling (3-8) received a pair of six-point wins from its nationally-ranked duo but dropped the remaining eight bouts in a 30-12 loss to North Dakota State on Jan. 12 at the Virginia Duals in Hampton, Va. The defeat ends the tournament for the Bearcats, who split their two matches on Jan. 11 to start the event.
Against the Bison, Binghamton dropped an overtime bout and a pair of four-point decisions which might have tightened the outcome.
Senior 197-pound Nate Schiedel provided the highlight of the match with his second pin in as many days. Schiedel, No. 6 in the latest InterMat rankings, needed just 1:24 to put Kallen Kleinschmidt to his back and end the encounter. Schiedel improved to 18-2 overall, 11-0 in duals.
Earlier, No. 7 Donnie Vinson received a forfeit win at 149 to also remain undefeated in duals. Vinson, who won twice on Jan. 11, including a 6-3 decision over the No. 6 wrestler in the country, lifted his record to 21-1, 11-0 in duals.
The Bearcats will remain in Virginia this week training for the CAA Duals, hosted by George Mason on Jan. 19. There, Binghamton will face the host Patriots, Rider and Drexel.
