#2 JWU Dominates Norwich & Southern Maine

#2 JWU Dominates Norwich & Southern Maine

NEW LONDON, Conn. – The second-ranked Johnson & Wales University wrestling team rolled to a pair of victories on Sunday. The Wildcats went on the road to defeat Norwich, 54-6, and Southern Maine, 33-9, at the Coast Guard Academy.

The wins up JWU's record to 14-4 on the year. The Wildcats have won 34-straight dual meets against New England schools.

After Norwich got a forfeit at 125 pounds, the Wildcats dominated the Cadets with nine-straight pins. The fastest was by fifth-ranked Michael DiNardo at 197 pounds as he won in just 38 seconds. Thomas Grippi and Da'mani Burns each posted pins in under a minute.

The second match was nearly just as lopsided. The Huskies got six points from a forfeit at 125 pounds, but the Wildcats went on to win eight of the next nine matches. Third-ranked Khamri Thomas posted a 25-8 tech fall at 184 pounds and DiNardo pinned Dylan Schenk in just 22 seconds of their 197-pound bout.

Next Sunday the Wildcats host the NEWA Duals at the Providence Convention Center.
