I have covered Princeton wrestling for the last 4 seasons and they have improved their team more than any other team that I have covered during that time. What makes this especially noteworthy is that they are an Ivy school. Tonight, in the neighborhood skirmish with Rider, Princeton wrestled their most complete dual that I’ve […]

If you’ve never been […]
If you weren’t in Lawrenceville New Jersey last night you missed a crazy early season match between to relatively new foes. Penn drew for a random weight class start and Jake Hendriz at 174 opened the match with a win. Then Rider cruised out to a 7-point lead before Penn had two falls to put […]
