Binghamton Open: Bearcats capture 3 first-place titles

The Binghamton Open tournament on November 11, 2012 brought a full house of fans, over 15 teams, and 300+ wrestlers from the northeast into Binghamton University's West Gym.  Wrestling took place on seven mats from 9 AM up to early evening.  Binghamton had three wrestlers to make it to the finals, and all three persevered and came out with a win.
