ATHENS, Ohio - The Ohio University wrestling team (6-2) won its third straight home match this season, defeating Eastern Michigan 22-13 Sunday afternoon at the Convocation Center.

Juniors Tywan Claxton (South Euclid, Ohio) and Spartak Chino (Wheaton, Ill.) gave Ohio a 6-0 lead as they claimed decisions at 149 and 157, respectively. Claxton's victory was his third-consecutive win as he improved to 17-4.

Eastern Michigan responded, with Jacob Davis defeating redshirt junior Harrison Hightower (Strongsville, Ohio) by decision at 165. The loss broke a four-match winning streak for Hightower, dropping his record to 22-8.

Ohio and Eastern Michigan traded victories at the 174 and 184 classes, tightening the score to 9-6, Ohio.

Redshirt sophomore Phil Wellington (Euclid, Ohio) picked up his 22nd at 197 with a major decision over EMU's Nick Whitenburg, strengthening the Bobcats lead, 13-6.

Playing off Wellington's momentum, redshirt senior Jeremy Johnson (Broadview Heights, Ohio) recorded his third-consecutive fall (5:31) and eighth on the season, increasing his team-best record to 24-3.

A triumph by freshmen Noah Forrider (Marysville, Ohio) at 141 solidified the Bobcat win over EMU, 22-13.
