Closing out their last weekend of the regular season at SUNY Brockport on Saturday and the Rochester Institute of Technology Tiger Duals on Sunday, the Wildcats went 1-3 to end 12-16 overall.

Against Brockport, decision wins by Dylan Otis, of Wyalusing, at 285; Dylan Gettys, of Etters, at 174; and Dan Bergeron, of Jackson, New Jersey, at 165, accounted for all of Penn College’s points in a 37-9 loss.
