Binghamton falls in tight matchup with American
February 02, 2020


WASHINGTON D.C. -The Binghamton University wrestling team made a late comeback against American, but ultimately fell in a tightly contested dual Saturday evening. The Bearcats returned No. 11 Zack Trampe to the lineup, and he headlined the team's efforts with a pin at 133 pounds.

Binghamton dropped the first four matchups of the evening, all in incredibly close fashion. No. 5 Lou DePrez was able to swing the momentum with a win over No. 23 Tanner Harvey. Harvey trailed 6-2 heading to the third and pushed for a late comeback but DePrez was able to handle a few late shots in an 8-6 decision.
Sam DePrez asserted his dominance early with a takedown and used ride time to carry himself to a 4-0 victory.
In a highly anticipated matchup, Joe Doyle dominated from start to finish against Niko Camacho, putting together a 7-1 decision.
No. 11 Zack Trampe made quick work of American's Josh Vega, leading 10-3 after the first period and pinning him minutes later.
With the bout tied at 15, Anthony Sparacio fought hard against No. 26 Sal Profaci, but was unable to get a takedown late in a 3-2 loss. The point proved to be the difference in the match.
