Truett-McConnell College students Gabe Miller and Zach Brown represented TMC's wrestling team at the NAIA National Wrestling Championships, March 1-3 in Des Moines, Iowa.
"Our team finished in thirty-third place, which is not last," Head Coach Jim Bailey told TMCNews.
Going into the tourney, Miller's season record of 24-6 and Brown's 19-11 record helped rank them among the top four in their respective national weight classes.
Brown's valiant effort got him close to advancing, but he lost his first two matches.
Miller split his matches, 2 - 2, and was only a couple of matches away from All-American status.
"Thanks to all who made this possible for us," Bailey said. "We plan to do even better in the future."
