Newman Arena is host to many sporting events, but this weekend Newman Nation was all about its wrestling. No. 4 Cornell lost a close dual match against No. 13 Wisconsin, 21-18, Friday night before coming back to win the team title at Body Bar Invitational on Saturday.
“If the [Wisconsin] match was going to go any other way, it would have gone our way,” said junior co-captain Jordan Leen. Leen said that this was “absolutely” a match Cornell could have won, but that the team would use it as an opportunity to prepare for its next match.
The Friday competition boasted a crowd of over 3,000 fans, and the Red and the Badgers gave them a good show, with the meet coming down to the night’s last match.
