Reed and White to take on the NCAA Championship!

Senior 197-pound Cody Reed took home runnerup honors to pace Binghamton wrestling at the EIWA Championship, which concluded Sunday night at The Palestra on campus at University of Pennsylvania. The Bearcats had five placewinners in their inaugural appearance at the championship and finished in a tie for seventh out of 18 teams. Reed and junior 125-pound David White (4th place) earned berths to the upcoming NCAA Championship.

The NCAA Championship will take place next weekend, March 20-22, in Oklahoma City.  The brackets have been released and you can view them here.  Cody Reed, making his 3rd consecutive NCAA appearance, will be facing ace ninth-seeded Christian Boley of Maryland in the opening round.

The pairing is a rematch of the 2012 NCAA Championship first round, when Reed posted a shocking 2-1 upset over then-No. 4 Boley. Last weekend, Reed made a strong showing at the EIWA Championship, winning three of four matches to earn an automatic bid. He posted a major decision in the first round and then recorded a dramatic pin in overtime over fellow NCAA qualifier James Fox of Harvard in the quarterfinals to seal his return trip to the national championship. Reed has four wins against the NCAA field. Boley (22-4) was the No. 1 seed at the ACC Championship but placed fourth.

White (26-11) will make his first NCAA Championship appearance and has drawn 12th-seeded Tim Lambert of Nebraska in the opening round. Lambert (22-11), a redshirt freshman, placed fifth at the Big Ten Championship. White went 4-2 at the EIWA Championship to finish fourth and claim an automatic berth.
