UTC's Carr Named SoCon Wrestler Of The Month

Monday, December 4, 2017
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga senior Bryce Carr is the Southern Conference Wrestler of the Month for November, the league office announced today. 

Carr earned the honor after going 8-1, winning both the Hokie Open and the Black Knight Invite at 184 pounds.  This is his second career monthly award from the SoCon after winning the award in January of last season.  

A senior from Dublin, Georgia, Carr had three major decisions, one technical fall and one pin last month.
  His only loss in the opening month was to No. 7 Zach Zavatsky of Virginia Tech in sudden victory.

Carr was named SoCon Wrestler of the Week on Nov. 8 after going 4-0 in the Hokie Open. He recorded two major decisions in his last three matches to end the month of November, boosting him to No. 13 in the nation at 184 pounds.

UTC is 2-2 overall after splitting matches last weekend with Davidson and No. 6 N.C. State.  UTC has two weeks to prepare for its last action of the calendar year when they take on No. 2 Ohio State in Alpharetta, Ga., on Dec. 15.  The dual takes place at 2:00 p.m. (E.S.T.) at the Cooler and ticket information is on the wrestling schedule page on GoMocs.com.

The Tennessee Lady Vols' 66-59 loss yesterday to Oregon State in round two of the NCAA Women's Tournament could very well be Coach Holly Warlick's last stand. After starting the 2017-18 season with fifteen straight wins, the Lady Vols slipped to just 10-8 the rest of the way.

Remember The Full Story Of Toys-R-Us - And Response

It is always disappointing when any business is forced to close because of competition. Big box stores do this to smaller retailers every day. And while Toys-R-Us seemed to be an unstoppable force, they have finally succumbed to online ordering and simplicity.  But if you think about it, when Toys-R-Us came into existence, imagine the number of “mom ‘n pop” toy stores that ...
