Bucknell Wrestling fell 31-11 on the road this weekend at Lehigh, pushing their record to 7-7 on the year and 3-4 in EIWA matches. The Bison went up against five ranked wrestlers for the Mountain Hawks, including three in the top ten.

Kurt Phipps ’24 got the Bison going with a win at 133 to make the deficit 53. He scored an escape in the second period of the match, which ended up being the only point he needed, winning by a 1-0 decision. This was now Phipps’s 20th win of the season.

After Phipps’ victory, Lehigh blew the doors off with a 16-0 run.

Noah Mulvaney ’27 lost his first match of the season after winning his first twelve. The stud first-year fought all throughout before falling in a 9-8 decision.

Myles Takats ’27 finally ended an eventual 18-3 Lehigh run with a technical fall, then Mikey Bartush ’26 followed that up with a 7-1 decision win, putting Bucknell within ten points.

The Bison would lose the final two bouts, and fall to Lehigh, who is now 6-0 in the EIWA.

Lehigh is a hard-nosed team that will fight you the entire match,” said Phipps. “When facing those types of teams our team’s focus is on competing in every position and not conceding easy points.”

Bucknell returns home next weekend to take on Brown, Saturday Feb. 17 at 7 p.m., also the team’s Senior Night.
