Everett finishes 3rd

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Bluffton University’s Trey Everett was the third-place finisher in the high jump at the Division III NCAA championships. Everett matched the winning height of 6-feet-11 but was awarded third based on the tiebreaker of fewest misses at that height.

Loveyjoy goes 1-2

HERSHEY, Pa. — Ohio Northern senior and Allen East graduate Cody Lovejoy finished with a 1-2 record at the 2015 NCAA Division III Wrestling Championships at the Giant Center on Friday.

Lovejoy, who entered the tournament as the top seed at heavyweight, finished his season with a 43-2 record and 27 pins.

He pinned Justice Davis of Concordia (Minn.) with 10 seconds left in the match in the first round on Friday morning.

He then dropped a 13-2 major decision to eighth-seeded Terrance Jean-Jacques of Rhode Island College in the Quarterfinals Friday evening.

In the Consolation Third Round late Friday night, he fell to seventh-seeded Anthony Edgren of Wisconsin-Whitewater 7-4.

“Obviously it was not the result we were hoping for,” ONU head coach Ron Beaschler said. “He had a great season and a great career. He accomplished two things that had not happened before at Ohio Northern — win 40 matches in a season twice and win the Elite 89 Award, which he did not once but twice.”
