Binghamton wins fourth straight

.CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- The Binghamton wrestling team heads home with back-to-back EIWA wins under its belt. The Bearcats took a dominating 33-14 victory over Harvard earlier in the afternoon before making the trip to Providence, Rhode Island where Binghamton won 19-15 over the Bears.

"We've got a lot of momentum right now," head coach Kyle Borshoff said. "We're doing a good job of building off of our success. We've been talking a lot about attitude and effort these last few weeks and the guys are stepping up in a huge way. It's really exciting to watch our team wrestle right now and if we keep up this intensity that we're bringing to the mat I think we're going to surprise a lot of people these next few months."

  • With its wins today, Binghamton moves to 4-3 overall with a 3-2 EIWA record.
    Four Bearcats went 2-0 on the day.
  • 133-pounder Zack Trampe and 174-pounder Vincent DePrez each won their fourth consecutive match tonight against Brown.
