Broncs Host Hofstra

Senior Day Sunday

LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ—Muhammad Ali had Joe Frazier.  Wilt Chamberlin had Bill Russell.  Macy’s had Gimbels.

And for the last 40 years, Rider has had Hofstra.

The Rider wrestling team will play host to one of its oldest rivals Sunday as the Broncs host the Hofstra Pride for a 5pm dual meet.

The match will also be Rider’s Senior Day, as Alumni Gymnasium says goodbye to two of the program’s more successful wrestlers.

Seniors Ramon Santiago and Jim Resnick will appear in the Broncs’ Zoo for the final time Sunday.

Resnick is a three-time NCAA qualifier with 65 victories. Santiago has 75 victories and is also an NCAA qualifier.  Both have been ranked among the top 15 in the nation in their respective weight classes.

Rider and Hofstra have met 41 times since the series began in 1973-74, with Rider winning 17.

Rider and Hofstra are former East Coast Conference, East Coast Wrestling Association and Colonial Athletic Association rivals. 

Hofstra won nine ECC/ECWA Titles while Rider won 13.

If you can't make the match, all non-televised home matches can be seen in high definition on BroncVision and MAAC.TV as part of Rider's pay per view service powered by

The audio will be simulcast on the video stream.
