FAIRFAX, Va. - The Hofstra Pride took home the team title at the 2007 CAA Wrestling Championships on Saturday night at John Linn Memorial Gym with a score of 138.5 points. Rounding out the top five were Old Dominion (89.0), Rider (84.5), Drexel (66.5) and Sacred Heart (41.5). The Pride will be sending eight wrestlers to the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships at The Palace of Auburn Hills near Detroit, Michigan, slated for March 15-17. Rider will be sending five wrestlers to competition and followed up behind them is Drexel with four competing wrestlers.

Hofstra's Mike Patrovich, the champion at 165 pounds, was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Wrestler. In his quarterfinal bout, Patrovich won by major decision against Brent Poynter of Campbell, 20-5. Patrovich then went on to beat Billy Haydt of Drexel by way of pin in 4:45. Patrovich won his championship bout in dominating fashion with a 19-3 technical fall against Nick Pullano of Old Dominion. Patrovich will be accompanied by seven teammates to Detroit, six by way of winning their respective weight classes, and one voted in as a wildcard.

In the three weight class titles not secured by Hofstra, Mike Roberts of Boston University at 149 pounds, Doug Umbehauer of Rider at 174 pounds and Payam Zarrinpour of Sacred Heart in the heavyweight bracket each took home personal titles at their respective weight classes to advance to nationals.

George Mason will not be sending a competitor to nationals this year, as Tyler Tisdell fell in the semifinals of the 165-pound championship bracket to Nick Pullano of Old Dominion in a close decision, 2-1.
