Olivet Wrestling team wins Midwest Regional title, qualifies five
for DIII National Championships
James Myers (Indian Creek) picked-up a bye for his first round match and then pinned Matt Tuttle from Alma in the quarterfinals and defeated Matt Lowry from Thiel, 10-4. In the championship match, he used an escape in third sudden death period to beat George Markou from Trine, 2-1. Myers will be making his second trip to the national championships, as he earned All-American honors in 2011 with a sixth-place finish.
Senior heavyweight Taylor Potts (Wellsburg,
W.Va./John Marshall) placed third after earning a 3-1 record with two
falls. He tied the W&J school record for single-season victories after finishing
with a 36-11 mark this winter. Potts tied DeJuliis for the single-season wins
record which the former All-American set in 2003.
PEMBROKE, N.C. – West Liberty University senior Jarrod Shaw (Brooke) won the 157-pound championship Saturday afternoon as the NCAA Division II Super Region One wrestling tournament concluded its two-day run at the English E. Jones Center on the campus of UNC-Pembroke.
As a regional champion, Shaw will lead a three-man contingent of Hilltopper grapplers to the 2012 NCAA Division II National Wrestling Championships, which will be held March 9-10 in Pueblo, Colo.
Fellow senior J.D. Ramsey punched his third NCAA national qualifying ticket with a third-place finish at 285 pounds while junior Matt Littleton finished fifth at 174 pounds but earned a trip to Pueblo with an impressive win against a higher-seeded wrestler in a True Fourth Place match.
The top four finishers in all 10 weight classes at the regional level are awarded spots in the national championship meet.
