Fort Wayne, IN-Sophomore 285 lbs. Terrance Jean-Jacques (Haverhill, MA) went 3-0 with a pin as the Rhode Island College wrestling team dropped three matches at the National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) Multi-Divisional National Duals on Friday afternoon.


"We are very disappointed we weren't able to compete successfully at the National Duals," Head Coach Jay Jones said. "We felt with the team we put together, having five starters who each have been in the national rankings as some points in their careers, that we could compete with anyone. We have to get back to basics, make better decisions on the mat, and get healthy for the NEWA Duals in two weeks. I am confident we can do that."
