Trinity Wrestling Wrecks Rhode Island College In Season's Last Tri-Match

Providence, R.I. - Junior Jack Reilly (Shrewsbury, Mass.) and sophomore Stephen Cerrone (Quechee, Vt.) each had a pin to lead the Trinity College Bantams to a 33-15 win over the Rhode Island College Anchormen in a wrestling tri-match at the RIC Recreation Center this evening.  Trinity, which also dropped a 21-19 decision against the Bridgewater State University Bears, closes the duals season with a 5-10 record.  The Bears, which also won, 23-21, over the Anchormen, are 6-9, and host Rhode Island College is now 6-14.  Trinity is off for nine days until the New England Wrestling Association (NEWA) Futures Tournament on Sunday, February 18 at Roger Williams University.

Against Bridgewater State, five Bantams won victories including a win by fall at 141 pounds by Trinity junior Drew Saccone (Osterville, Mass.), but the Bears earned 18 of their points on two pins and a forfeit.  Cerrone pinned his Anchorman opponent in 5:18 at 174 pounds and Reilly did the same in the 157-pound bout in just 52 seconds.  Saccone, junior captain 149-pounder Grant Sorensen (Moore, Okla.), sophomore 165-pounder Lukas Kaminski (Hopkinton, Mass.), Cerrone, and junior heavyweight Mason Sangillo (Florham Park, N.J.) all went 2-0 for the night.  Sorensen became the fourth Bantam to reach 30 victories in a single season.
