Hofstra won its first dual meet of the season on Wednesday night as the Pride topped Rider 17-15 in Hempstead. Both squads captured five victories, but bonus points earned by Hofstra’s 125-pounder Steve Bonnano and 141-pounder Luke Vaith were the difference in the meet.
The Pride will look to build on the momentum as they travel to Virginia for the CAA Duals this weekend.
