Princeton beats Cornell 19-13 Video and Interviews

Video in process

So many story lines in this one. There is a new Ivy champ for the first time in 17 years. Princeton claims their first Ivy wrestling championship this century. Their last championship was while I was wrestling in college, 1986. The return of Kolo. he didn’t look great but 149 is wide open this season and I’m sure that he will improve between now and March. Lastly the marquee match up at 197. I didn’t see  Darmstadt totally dominating Brucki like he did. Darmstadt beat Bricki in the dual two years ago but it was a close match. Not so much today. It wasn’t as close as the score. Bricki will need to figure out how to finish and get out from under the “Tall Man” to be more competitive. Darmstadt looked better than I’ve ever seen.

Even with the Bricki loss I’ve never seen the Tigers so happy during the end of the Stefanik match when the win was secured and after the dual itself.
