Cambridge, MA – On Saturday January 28th, a group of 25 wrestlers had the incredible opportunity to visit Harvard University to train with the Crimson Wrestling team on their home mat at the Maklin Athletic Center. Student-athletes participated in a clinic led by Harvard’s wrestlers and coaching staff, working on technique and drills in all three phases (neutral, top and bottom). BYW student-athletes also had a chance to listen to some encouraging words about how the skills learned in wrestling can be used in the classroom and beyond. After a lunch donated by The Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. our student-athletes were treated to a tightly contested match between the host Harvard University Crimson versus the Columbia University Lions in an Ivy League rivalry matchup. In the end, the Crimson prevailed 24-14.
