LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Rochester Community and Technical College wrestling team finished second overall in the NWCA/NJCAA Multi-Division National Duals on Saturday at Freedom Hall.

The Yellowjackets lost in the title round to NASSAU (N.Y.) Community College 23-15.

RCTC got wins in that championship from 149-pounder Brandon Kidd (4-3 decision), 157-pounder Alex Lloyd (11-4 decision), 174-pounder Jeremiah Colon (11-5 decision) and 197-pounder Richie Hammonds (pin, 4:43).

Earlier in the meet, RCTC beat Rowan College (N.J.) at Cloucester County 25-16 in the first round and Harper College (Ill.) 31-16 in the semifinals.

"As a team we don’t have a lot of duals," RCTC coach Randy Rager said. "Our philosophy as a program is about the development and opportunity of all the wrestlers on the team, and for that reason we do a lot of open tournaments.

"This event gave the team the opportunity to come closer together as a team. I feel that we wrestled well, but still have some things to work on before we get into the postseason at the end of the year."

RCTC hosts the MCAC dual championships on Wednesday at UCR Regional Sports Center.
