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.
