Journeymen/ ITALIAN EXCHANGE
During the 2003 World Championships Coaches Liuzzi and Popolizio connected and established a bond that has thrived and flourished over the past 7 years. Every other year the Journeymen Wrestling team sends a contingency to Bagnoli Italy (close proximity to Naples). During the off years the Italian team maks their way to America and the Journeymen Wrestling Club. This trip is one of the premier events that Journeymen Wrestling sponsors. It is in ultra demand and spots are limited to 35 students. The 2010 trip should prove to be an extra special trip. Two-time World Champion Terry Brands and Binghamton University Head Coach, Pat Popolizio are heading to Bagnoli with Journeymen. The 2010 camp is slated for July 25th 2010 ? August 2nd 2010.
