Updated Brackets through Session III

Philadelphia -*Senior Colby Covington and sophomore Mike Mangrum are the two remaining wrestlers still in alive in the NCAA Wrestling Tournament after Friday morning's session, leading Oregon State to a 23rd place showing after three full sessions with 18.0 team points.

One more win for both wrestlers locks in All-America status. Mangrum will wrestle No. 10 Todd Schavrien of Missouri at 141 pounds in Friday evening's session, while Covington will take on Ryan Patrovich of Hofstra at 174 pounds.

In Oregon State's first match of the morning, Mangrum and Anwar Goeres wrestled a pair of scoreless periods before Goeres took a 2-0 lead on Mangrum on a reversal after choosing down to start the third. Mangrum went on a 6-0 run with an escape, takedown and three-point near fall sequence to advance to the next round with a 6-4 decision.

Redshirt freshman Scott Sakaguchi followed soon after at 149 pounds on the next mat over, falling behind Justin Gaethje of Northern Colorado 4-2 at the start of the final period. Sakaguchi wore Gaethje down, eliminating the riding time factor first before eventually tying the match up at six all to force a one-minute sudden victory. With 36 seconds remaining in the overtime period, Sakaguchi turned on Gaethje, earning the 8-6 decision and advancing.

Mangrum extended his tournament run by upsetting No. 9 Cole VonOhlen from Air Force, shutting VonOhlen out early before holding on to win 6-4. Last season, Mangrum fell 9-7 to Germane Lindsey of Ohio in the All-America qualifying match.

Senior fourth-seeded Colby Covington looked to get redemption after a heartbreaking quarterfinal loss in last year's NCAA Championships at 174 pounds. But Virginia's fifth-seeded Christopher Henrich attacked quickly and jumped out to an early lead over Covington - holding Covington to only escape points until a takedown late in the second period. Covington put another point on the board on the escape in the third, but he was unable to overcome the deficit and Henrich's stalling with Henrich adding a point for riding time to win 7-5.

In the first round of wrestlebacks on the day, senior Brice Arand was unable to score any offensive points, ending his NCAA Tournament run in a 6-1 decision in favor of No. 6 Ryan Loder of Northern Iowa. Arand finished with a 1-2 showing. Junior Chad Hanke battled but came up just short against No. 9 Sonny Yohn of Minnesota, 5-3, while junior Clayton Jack got caught while attacking and was pinned in 41 seconds by Kevin Lester of Columbia.

After his earlier impressive comeback, Sakaguchi couldn't quite top Ivan Lopouchanski of UNC Greensboro, falling 8-3, and finishing the NCAA Tournament at 3-2 overall.
