Making The List

OSWEGO, N.Y. – The Ursinus College wrestling team  is ranked 28th in the recently BRUTE/ADIDAS National Wrestling Coaches Association Division III poll released Tuesday afternoon.

The Bears are perfect 12-0, and recently finished the Centennial Conference dual meet season a perfect 8-0 with wins over McDaniel, Washington & Lee and New York University on Saturday.  This marked the first time Ursinus went undefeated in Centennial duals since 2006, and will finish atop the standings for the first time since 2007, ending Merchant Marine's four year run atop at the standings.

This is the first time the Bears have appeared in the rankings this season.

The Bears will actually face a ranked team on Saturday, as they travel to McDaniel to take on 19th ranked Wilkes University (15-3) and University of Maryland – Baltimore County.
