Bucknell Wrestling took on Brown at home this past weekend as the team celebrated its senior day.

Miles Bassett ’24, Dorian Crosby ’24, Nick Delp ’24, Matt Kidwell ’24 and Austin Walley ’24 were recognized and honored as members of the Class of 2024.

Kurt Phipps ’24 got the scoring started for the Bison, winning in a 6-1 decision. At this point, Bucknell trailed 4-3 after a slow start to the match.

Then, after Dylan Chappell ’26 gave the Bison the lead with a 7-2 decision, the Orange and Blue didn’t trail for the rest of the match. Braden Bower ’26 continued the momentum, winning in a 9-0 major decision after Chappell.

Noah Mulvaney ’27 kept the Bison rolling with an exciting comeback win. After trailing 4-0 early in the match, he would stampede back to win in a 9-5 decision, improving his record to 24-4 on the season.

After the match sat at 13-12, Mikey Bartush ’26 at 184 and Logan Deacetis ’25 at 197 headlined a late Bison run by their wins.

“The atmosphere was electric and I couldn’t be more thankful to have such a supportive group of teammates, parents and friends,” Crosby said. “Everything I do is for this team and my teammates that mean the world to me. Great way to end my Bucknell career in Davis Gym!”

The Bison finished up in a storybook ending, as Crosby pinned his opponent late, propelling the Bison to 30 points as a team for the fifth time this season. This win moved Bucknell to 8-7 on the season and 4-4 in the EIWA.

Next up for the Bison, they travel to Princeton on Friday, February 23rd to take on the Tigers.
