WRESTLING | Red Drops Matches to Nebraska, Rutgers at Grapple


Madison Square Garden is an intimidating venue for an athlete, no matter his or her skill level. The Cornell wrestling team traveled down to the Garden this past weekend to compete in the annual Grapple at the Garden, where it dropped two matches to No. 5 Nebraska and No. 14 Rutgers, a day after the Cornell men’s ice hockey team went up against Boston University at the same venue. “For the most part, we wrestled tough and a lot of the younger guys got some experience, especially wrestling in front of such a huge crowd and a big arena,” junior and former All-American Brian Realbuto said.
