Trinity Wrestling Closes Duals Season At Bridgewater State Quad
Bridgewater, Mass. - The Trinity College Bantams went 0-3 in the final duals action of the 2011-12 season, losing to the United States Coast Guard Academy Bears, 22-14, the Rhode Island College Anchormen, 33-9, and the host Bridgewater State University Bears, 27-22, in a quad match this afternoon. Trinity closes the duals season with a 4-15 record and 10 straight setbacks.
Against Coast Guard, who Trinity had beaten, 28-12, earlier this winter, Trinity junior 174-pounder Kyle Muir (Barre, Mass.) and freshman 149-pounder Thomas Crabtree (North Andover, Mass.) posted decision victories, while freshman heavyweight Kyle McGuire (Mansfield, Mass.) won his bout by decision in the Rhode Island College match.
The Bridgewater State match came down to the final weight class, as Sean Fields downed Crabtree, 6-1, with the Bears clinging to a 24-22 lead. Trinity sophomore 197-pounder Petros Hologitas (Rockland, Mass.) had upped the Bantam lead against the Anchormen to 22-0 midway through, but three forfeits and one pin gave Rhode Island College 24 unanswered points entering the 149 bout. Trinity competed without senior captain heavyweight Greg Vaughan (Hingham, Mass.), ranked 10th nationally, in all three matches.
