Boston University wrestling team red-shirt freshman Fred Santaite came only one win away from becoming the school’s fifth All-American and its first since 1997 at the NCAA Championships this weekend, before falling twice in the quarterfinals.
Talk about an all-in bet.
Sophomore Freddy Santaite is the only representative of the Boston University wrestling team in the NCAA Wrestling Championships in Omaha, Neb., but now the whole field is watching out for him after his stunning upset of the No. 2 seeded &- and defending national champion &- senior Troy Nickerson of Cornell University Thursday night.
The Boston University wrestling team ended its regular season on a high note Saturday, earning its fourth win of the season against American International College by a score of 35-9. The win came mere hours after a 32-10 loss to Colonial Athletic Association foe Rider University. Both duals were held at Case Gymnasium.
The Boston University wrestling team has been riddled with injuries this season, so it should be no riddle why the Terriers suffered identical 28-12 losses to Brown University and Princeton University on Friday, and a 31-9 defeat against Drexel University on Saturday.
