FAIRFAX, Va. -   The ninth annual CAA Duals took place in the Field House today with all seven CAA teams competing.  Mason was paired up against Rider, Boston University, and Hofstra, and received losses to all three teams.  Denny Herndon was perfect on the day with a 2-0 record.  Jimmy Webb, Jaaziah Bethea, Aaron Keeton and Shohei Takagi also had victories on the day.  Bethea and Herndon each had a major decision. 

Mason took on Rider in the first match of the day and came away with a 29-6 loss.  Denny Herndon and Jimmy Webb both posted victories in the match.  Herndon defeated Aaron Nestor in a tight 3-2 decision and Webb also posted a 3-2 decision over Joseph Ferber.  Rider put up two major decisions in the match and Mason was also forced to forfeit the 133 weight class.  Jim Resnick and Evan Craig picked up the major decisions for Rider.   

In Mason's second match on the day they lost to Boston University by a score of 31-11.  After a fall by Huxford in 0:25 and a forfeit in the 133 weight class, Mason found themselves in a 12-0 hole.  They would then bounce back and win three of the next four matchups bringing the score to 11-15, but Boston University would not lose again.  They finished with three straight wins, including a fall and a major decision.  Denny Herndon and Jaaziah Bethea both recorded major decisions in this match.  Herndon beat Jordan Frease 12-4 and Bethea posted a 13-3 victory over Nick Tourville.  Aaron Keeton also recorded a victory in a 3-1 decision over Kyle Czarnecki.  In the heavyweight matchup, Hunter Manspile lost a 6-4 decision to Alex Najjar in overtime.  Brock Mantella had the major decision for Boston University and John Hall recorded a fall over Jimmy Webb.   

Hofstra was Mason's final opponent and they lost 34-3.  Mason's lone victory was from Shohei Takagi when he defeated Matt Spataro in an 11-8 decision.  Vincente Varela of Hofstra recorded a major decision against Brian Benton and Ben Clymer had a fall against Seth Robertson.

Binghamton was 3-0 in the duals, Hofstra was 3-1, ODU was 2-0-1, Boston University was 1-1-1, Rider was 1-2 and Drexel was 0-2. 

Mason will wrestle again next Thursday, January 20 when they travel to VMI.  That match is set to begin at 7 p.m.
