Wrestling Travels to Binghamton Open Saturday
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. The Virginia wrestling team makes its first road trip of the 2007-08 season Saturday as it visits the Brute/Binghamton Open in Binghamton, N.Y.
The Cavaliers opened the season last Saturday in dominating fashion with wins over Wagner (52-0), Anderson (45-3) and VMI (42-3) at Memorial Gymnasium. The Cavaliers lost just two of their 30 matches on the day en route to the big wins.
