Henderson Rolls Into Southern Scuffle Quarters
Release: 01/01/2014

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- Junior 141-pounder Evan Henderson improved to 18-1 on the year and advanced to the quarterfinals with three wins at the 2014 Southern Scuffle Wednesday at UTC's McKenzie Arena. Henderson scored a pair of pins before taking an 11-6 decision against Virginia's Justin Van Hoose.

While Henderson is the only Tar Heel remaining in the championship draw, several other Carolina wrestlers will compete on day two. Brian Bokoski (125), Troy Heilmann (133), Joe Moon (141), Christian Barber (149), Jake Crawford (157), Scott Marmoll (174) and Alex Utley (184) are still alive in consolation action.

Henderson opened his day with a first-period pin of Cleveland State's Jayce Carr and followed that with another first-period pin of Northern Colorado's Nick Adams in round two. The New Florence, Pa., All-America then took care of Van Hoose in the evening session to set up a quarterfinal meeting with Old Dominion's Chris Mecate. Henderson and Mecate have already met twice this season, with the Tar Heel junior winning the two previous encounters.

Despite no other Carolina wrestlers advancing in the evening session, a number of Tar Heels fared well against top national competition. At 125, Bokoski went toe to toe with fifth-seeded and No. 8-ranked David Terao of American before falling late, 15-11. Utley went to the wire with second-seeded Kevin Steinhaus of Minnesota at 184 before losing 6-2 on a late takedown.

Action at the 2014 Southern Scuffle resumes Thursday at 9 a.m. with championship quarterfinal action. To follow live scoring and the latest from Chattanooga, visit TheSouthernScuffle.com.
