Rensselaer pins down 2nd NYS title

02/14/2008 -

Rensselaer (RPI) won it's second straight New York State dual meet championship Saturday at the SUNY Albany campus, who was host to the event. RPI beat Hudson Valley Community College (HVCC) and SUNY Stonybrook before meeting up with SUNY Albany in the final match up of the night. RPI recorded 5 pins in that match to help secure its victory. "It was a total team effort tonight" said Coach Brad Nelson who points to a new attitude and work ethic in the room as a catalyst. "Were going to keep working hard and use this as a positive stepping stone toward Regionals and Nationals" says Nelson. Next up for RPI: The Presidents Day Dual Meet Challenge hosted by SUNY Albany.
