Wrestling in the 197 weight class, Bonaccorsi is a four-time NCAA Qualifier from 2019-22 and finished as runner-up in 2021. He is a two-time consecutive reigning ACC Champion, won the USA U23 Freestyle National Champion in 2021 and has 98 wins over the course of his collegiate career. It shouldn’t be too surprising to see Bonaccorsi contend for another ACC title and a NCAA Title as well this upcoming year.
Phillippi wrestles in the 133 weight class, and like Bonaccorsi, a four-time NCAA qualifier from 2019-22. He also won the ACC title in 2019 and 2020 and finished as runner-up the past two years. Phillippi has 116 wins to his name and is hoping to move farther in the NCAA Championships for one last shot at the title.
One last ride!#H2P https://t.co/0PFgpqWc3B
