Brown Wrestling Defeats Springfield, but Drops to Boston University

Jan. 18, 2004

The men's wrestling team defeated Springfield 26-13, but dropped to Boston University 24-12 Saturday afternoon. Senior Sean Jenkins (Schnecksville, PA) and sophomores Greg Pace (Bethel, CT) and Dan Appello (Roselle Park, NJ) won both their bouts at their respected weights.

Brown won the first two classes against the Terriers to go ahead 6-0, but dropped matches at 141 and 149 pounds to give BU a 9-6 lead.

The Bears took two of the next three matches to tie the score at 12-12. However, the Terriers ended Brown's threat by taking the last three matches.

Brown took charge in its win over Springfield College by winning five of the first six matches. Pace, Appello, and Jenkins each won two matches in the double dual.

The Bears return to the mats January 24 at Rutgers. Wrestling will begin at 1:00 p.m.
