HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- The 2008 CAA Tournament wrestling brackets were released last night as ODU boasts two #1 seeds in 125-pounder James Nicholson (Des Moines, Iowa) and 165-pounder Chris Brown (Chesapeake, Va.). In all, five Monarchs are seeded either #1 or #2 in the tournament as the team seeks its first CAA Championship since 1991. Wrestling begins at 1:00 pm today.
At 125 lbs, 10th ranked James Nicholson, the #1 seed, will take on Sacred Heart's Ed Galvin to kick off the tournament for ODU.
The first round begins at 1:00 pm, and will continue to 3:00. The quarterfinals and first round consolations will begin immediately following the end of the first round.
Old Dominion won 17 duals this season, second most in program history and is primed to overthrow the Hofstra Pride, who are seeking their seventh straight CAA title. The Monarchs will have their work cut out for them as the home team boasts five #1 seeds and several nationwide top ten wrestlers.
