    2024 EIWA Championships Preview

    This is the last EIWA Championships that will include the Ivy League schools. Next season, the Ivies will host their own conference championship tournament. Columbia, Pennsylvania, and Princeton were original founding members in 1905. Cornell joined in 1908, making them the fourth longest-tenured school in the conference. Next season, Lehigh will become the longest-tenured school, joining the EIWA in 1913. Army and Navy each joined in 1941. The Sharks of Long Island University are the newest members of the conference. LIU became a member in 2019. 

    The Mountain Hawks of Lehigh led the conference with a 7-0 record this season. Cornell won the Ivy League Championship for the third straight season. They have won 20 of the last 21 Ivy League titles. 

    This year, the NCAA allocations were generous to the conference. The 2023 total number was 45 at this time. This year’s net total was 53 – an increase of 8. Another way to look at it – almost every weight class gained an extra automatic spot. It’s a good indication of how the conference compares to a year ago. Looking at other conferences, the EIWA had the highest increase from last season. For what it’s worth, the 6 Ivy League schools leaving the conference, starting next year, earned 23 of the 54 spots.

    Below is a breakdown of each weight class with summaries of results of last season. It will highlight returning NCAA qualifiers from last season, discuss ranked wrestlers at each weight, plus much more. Hopefully, this improves your viewing experience by providing you with some helpful information.  

    125

    This weight class qualified six wrestlers for the 2023 NCAA Championships. Last season, Princeton’s Patrick Glory was crowned EIWA Champion and became the school’s first NCAA Champion in 72 years. With Glory’s departure, this weight class will see a new champion. Five NCAA qualifiers from a season ago are back to try and claim this title. These five include Brett Ungar of Cornell, Diego Sotelo of Harvard, Ethan Berginc of Army, and Nick Babin of Columbia. Jack Maida was an NCAA qualifier last season up at 133 lbs.
