Road to the podium: Ithaca wrestling team hopes to peak in postseason
February 21, 2019


After taking several losses at the beginning of the 2018–19 season, the Ithaca College men’s wrestling team has bounced back and seems poised to be at the top this year. The team is currently on a seven-game win streak, and the wrestlers are hopeful that their success will continue as they begin their championship season.

The team is currently the sixth-ranked Division III team in the country, according to the InterMat Wrestling rankings. The Bombers hold an 11–4 record on the season with only two meets left on the schedule. Out of the South Hill squad’s four losses on the season, the first two losses came from Division I schools at Northeast Duals, which were against University of Virginia and Appalachian State University. The only other two losses occurred at National Duals against the fourth-ranked Wabash College and fifth-ranked Baldwin Wallace University.
