DUBUQUE - Three Coe College wrestlers earned spots Sunday in the NCAA Division III national tournament by virtue of their finishes at the NCAA Central Regional Championships.

Defending national champion Farai Sewera had a big day for the Kohawks at 165 pounds, capping his day with a 6-4 overtime decision over second-seeded Nicholas Michael of Wartburg, 6-4. Sewera (25-2) was named the meet's Most Outstanding Wrestler.

Returning All-American Ryan Harrington (25-3) earned a return trip to nationals at 174 after losing a 3-1 decision to top-ranked Eric DeVos of Wartburg in the finals on a takedown in the final seconds.

At 125, Jan Rosenberg (21-10) also earned a return trip to nationals by winning the third-place match with a 12-8 win over Jimmy Panozza of Augustana. Rosenberg will take a 21-10 record into the NCAA National Championships.

The national meet will be held March 11-12 at the U.S. Cellular Center.
