Mocs' Levi Clemons added to NCAA tournament field

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga wrestler Levi Clemons has been added to the NCAA tournament field in the 174-pound weight class.

A third-place finisher in last weekend's Southern Conference tournament, Clemons earned the berth when another wrestler withdrew because of injury.

Mocs coach Heath Eslinger was unsure of which wrestler withdrew but did say that the bracket would be reconfigured.

The addition gives the Mocs five competitors in the tournament, which is scheduled March 15-17 in St. Louis.

Clemons will join Nick Soto (133), Dean Pavlou (149), Dan Waddell (157) and Brandon Wright (165).
