Scott third at U.S. Senior Nationals

North Carolina head wrestling coach Coleman Scott took third place at 57 kg (126 pounds) at last weekend's U.S. Nationals/Trials Qualifier at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The 2012 Olympic bronze medalist will compete for a place on the 2016 Olympic team at the U.S. Trials in Iowa City in April.
After an opening round bye, Scott, a Waynesburg High School graduate, scored a pair of 10-0 technical falls against Stevan Micic and Andrew Hochstrasser. Wrestling for the Sunkist Kids, Scott dropped a 3-2 decision to eventual champion Daniel Dennis of the Titan Mercury Wrestling Club in the semifinals before handing Nathan Tomasello a tech fall in the consolation semis. Scott finished the event by decisioning Erkin Tadzhimetov of the New York AC, 7-3, to claim third place.
