When Hofstra hosted the NCAA wrestling championships at Madison Square Garden, March 17-19, the University had an opportunity to showcase the talent of more than its skilled student athletes. At the performance of the National Anthem each evening, the Hofstra ROTC Color Guard was on the floor of Garden presenting the nation’s colors and flags, and Christina Cinnamo, a junior music education major from Franklin Square, NY, performed the Star Spangled Banner on Friday, March 18.
Hofstra junior Michael Hughes and graduate-student Jamel Hudson were eliminated from the 2016 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships in session three at Madison Square Garden Friday afternoon. Both wrestlers advanced to second day of the Championship by posting a 1-1 record on Thursday’s first day, with both losing their matches in session I before staying alive with a win in the first round of the consolations Thursday night.
