The Brown University Wrestling Team was defeated in the final match of the Virginia Duals by Edinboro University 32-6. The Bears competed without four starters and had to forfeit two weight classes due to injury.
Starters Nick Ciarcia (Berlin, CT), Lucas Magnani (Islip, NY), Clint Frease (Clearwater, FL), and Jason Mercado (Pitman, NJ) had to watch from the side as an injury plagued Brown team saw only two victories over Edinboro.
Sophomore Michael Savino (Laewrenceville, NJ), who wrestles 157, brought in another victory, making him undefeated at the Virginia Duals. Also grabbing a victory for the Bears was freshman heavyweight Lee Beane (Bridgewater, MA). This was Beane's second win at the Virginia Duals.
The Bears will return home to host Boston University, Sacred Heart and Johnson and Wales this Saturday, January 18 starting at noon.
