Carr, a transfer from Seton Hill, has won all nine of his matches against wrestlers from his own region. Foley holds a record of 38-6 this season and finished third at the Northeast Regionals last weekend.

At last year's national championship, the Pride sent six wrestlers and produced three All-Americans, including 157 pound national champion Devin Biscaha. Joe Grippi and Derek Adams both earned All-America honors. As a team, Springfield finished 8th out of 64 teams represented in the competition with 42 points, the highest team finish for the Pride since the 1998 team took seventh.
