Home Teams Bridgewater State MoTW: NEWA Duals

MoTW: NEWA Duals


The New England Wrestling Association duals take place today at Bridgewater State College.  All 15 NEWA schools are taking part in this dual meet tournament.  Rhode Island College, in the midst of the best season in school history, has the top seed and the first round bye this weekend.  Fresh off a 5th place finish at the Budd Whitehill Duals, top ranked Michael Bonora (141) leads Rhode Island into competition.  #2 seed Johnson & Wales has had a disappointing season after the heights the team reached last year, but they appear to be hitting their stride at the right time, as an 8th place finish at the NWCA National Duals and the return of some starters has pushed them to a #16 national ranking, two spots behind #14 Rhode Island.

Rounding out the top four seeds are #3 Roger Williams and #4 Southern Maine.  Each faces a stern test to get to the semifinals, with Roger Williams to face #6 Williams and USM to face host #5 Bridgewater State.
