UTC's Bryce Carr falls just short of All-America wrestling status

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's Bryce Carr grapples with Southern Illinois University Edwardsville's Bryce Shewan during the UTC vs. SIU-Edwardsville 184 pound match at Maclellan Gym at UTC Friday, Jan. 19, 2018, in Chattanooga, Tenn.

Bryce Carr fought his way through the consolations Friday afternoon in Cleveland, Ohio, but the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga 184-pound wrestler's pursuit of being the program's first All-American in 10 seasons fell one win short.

Carr led after two periods but lost a 6-4 decision to Cornell's Maxwell Dean in the "blood round" of the NCAA Championships at Quicken Loans Arena.

The UTC senior was attempting to become the first Moc to earn All-America honors since Cody Cleveland placed eighth at 141 pounds in 2008. He advanced through three rounds of consolations, earning a 3-1 sudden victory over Wisconsin's Ricky Robertson with a takedown in the extra period followed by a 7-3 win over Rutgers' Nick Gravina.

Carr had two takedowns, a reversal and some riding time to avenge a 2017 loss at the same point of last season's championships.
