Cascino Pins Nation's No. 10-Ranked Heavyweight For Bantams 

Bristol, R.I. – Junior Lucian Cascino (Jamaica Plain, Mass.) won twice by fall, including a pin of the nation's No. 10-ranked heavyweight in just 42 seconds, as the Trinity College Bantams competed in a wrestling tri-match at Roger Williams University this afternoon.  Trinity, now 0-5, lost to the Worcester Polytechnic Institute Engineers, 42-9, and to the host Hawks, 35-18, despite the two wins by Cascino and a pair of victories at 141 pounds by sophomore captain Grant Sorensen (Moore, Okla.).  The Engineers beat the Hawks, 23-9 to go 2-0.

Against WPI, Sorensen earned a 4-2 victory over Andrew Ellis and Cascino pinned No. 10-ranked Austin Shewsbury to account for the Bantam points.  Both Cascino and Sorensen collected six points against Roger Williams with wins by fall, as did Bantam sophomore 157-pounder Jack Reilly (Andover, Mass.) against Carter Merecki.
