Coaches Corner

Overall, I thought the team showed a tremendous improvement from the dual meet to our tournament competition. We competed more aggressively on Sunday and the results showed it, with five of our student-athletes finishing in the top three. The level of competition in this tournament was highly competitive so having four wrestlers reach the finals and another wrestler finish 3rd shows our ability win at the National Level. We will continue to face many ranked opponents throughout the remainder of the season and look forward to the challenges that lie ahead.

Two student-athletes who had a stand-out weekend are Justin Lister and Nick Gwiazdowski. Justin Lister was behind early in his match against Peppelman of Harvard, but showed a lot of heart and fight, coming from behind to win an exciting match.
Nick Gwiazdowski, a true freshman, demonstrated that his wrestling talent and abilities are legitimate and ready for collegiate opponents.  Nick showed a lot of composure after being down early; coming back to tie up the match and then getting the pin makes a big statement. He has high goals for this season and should find himself in the national rankings very soon.

Upcoming Match

The Bearcats’ next match will be at the Body Bar Invitational held at Cornell University on Saturday, November 19th.  This tournament draws some of the best wrestling teams in the country, including Minnesota this year, so it should be a great day of wrestling.


A special thanks to all of the friends and family of Binghamton Wrestling who helped coordinate food, set-up and breakdown for our wrestling-filled weekend. Thank you for all the help!
 Thank you to Colleen Schiedel and Joanne Perry for all their time and energy spent helping with the hospitality room. No doubt about it—it is arguably the best hospitality room in the country.
 Another special thanks goes to the Morris family for streaming our matches at  It is a huge help to have our matches broadcasted live over the internet for all our fans who cannot attend!
