It was Senior Day in Section 4 on Sunday as both Cornell and Binghamton honored their graduating wrestlers. While the Big Red crushed Bucknell, 37-3, the Bearcats dropped a CAA dual against a surging Hofstra team, 23-19.
Still, the nationally-ranked seniors who took the mat for Cornell (Kyle Dake and Steve Bosak) and Binghamton (Donnie Vinson and Nate Schiedel) finished in style with pins in front of their home crowds.
