    EIWA Weekly Recap (12/20/2023)

    Below is a recap of last week’s EIWA action, with individual news and highlights worth noting.

    Key Takeaways 

    • Janda of Drexel wins over #19 Perrine of Ohio 
    • Lou DePrez of Binghamton is granted a medical redshirt 
    • Bucknell goes 2-0 on the weekend with 2 home dual wins
    • Cornell goes 2-1 at National Collegiate Duals



    American did not compete this past weekend. The Eagles will have no competition until they face off with Navy on 12/21. 



    The Black Knights were off the mat this weekend. Next up for “America’s Team” is the Wilkes Open in two weeks a few days before Christmas. 



    Binghamton will be at the Wilkes Open and the Sheridan Invitational at Lehigh. These events are on the same day, so expect a split lineup at each. They were off last weekend, but they had big news. Multiple time All-American, Lou Deprez has been granted a medical redshirt - allowing him one last year to compete. He officially makes his return for the second half of the season. He competed in the US Open Freestyle Nationals, placing eighth. Not a bad debut, after being sidelined for nearly a year.  



    The Bears of Brown University have not been in competition since before Thanksgiving. They will be fresh this week, as they are another team who will be at Lehigh for the Sheridan Invitational. 



    The Bison were on the mats for two duals at home against Buffalo and Bloomsburg. They beat Bloomsburg handily, while they needed criteria to win over Buffalo. Dorian Crosby was 2-0 with two tech falls on the day. Kurt Phipps, Braden Bower, Noah Mulvaney, and Myles Takats were all 2-0 on the day as well.
