BU wrestling gears up for 2018 EIWA Championships

Posted: Updated:

VESTAL (WBNG) - The Binghamton University wrestling team heads to the 2018 EIWA Championships at Hofstra University on Saturday and Sunday. The Bearcats have ten wrestlers competing for a chance to advance to the NCAA Championships. 

One of the wrestlers competing for BU is Norwich native and redshirt sophomore Tristan Rifanburg. Rifanburg says he's feeling a lot more comfortable this season after finishing 8th at the EIWA Championships in 2017. 

"Kind of got my feet wet last year," said Binghamton sophomore Tristan Rifanburg. "I had good results, but struggled to stay consistent all year. I think I had a better year this year, with a couple ups-and-downs, but just having more fun this year. Enjoying wrestling, enjoying going to practice. I love my team."

Wrestling begins Saturday, March 3 at 11 a.m.
