NEW YORK, NY - The New York University wrestling team completed its 2017-18 season on Saturday, the second of two days at the NCAA Division III Championships, which were hosted by Baldwin Wallace University in Cleveland, OH.

NYU was represented by Evan Drill (149 pounds) and Raymond Jazikoff (157 pounds) on Saturday. Both wrestlers won matches at Friday evening's session to guarantee themselves a top-eight finish and All-America honors. Drill took home fourth-place honors, while Jazikoff finished in seventh.

Drill opened up the day with a 23-12 major decision victory over fourth-seeded Bradan Birt of Millikin University to avenge a 24-7 technical fall loss to Birt earlier in the season. The sophomore followed it up with another win in the consolation semifinals, defeating fifth-seeded Alex Wilson of Augsburg 7-4 to earn a spot in the third-place match, where he lost via fall to eighth-seeded Austin Bethel of Wabash College. Drill wraps up his sophomore campaign with a 37-7 record.

"We're proud of the way Evan wrestled this weekend," said Senior Assistant Coach Corey Luce. "He defeated three wrestlers who were seeded among the top five in his weight class. We're excited to watch him keep getting better."

Jazikoff suffered a 9-7 setback to Kevin Edwards of Messiah College in his first match of the day and fell into the seventh-place match where he took on seventh-seeded Kyle Hatch of Wabash. Hatch took Jazikoff down early to go ahead 2-0, but the South Plainfield, NJ, native took over from there, dominating his way to a 10-4 win and a seventh-place finish.

The senior concludes his career as one of the most decorated NYU wrestlers of all-time as he now holds the program record for career victories (149) and single-season victories (48).

"Nothing was ever handed to Raymond. All of his accolades are the product of his work ethic and desire to compete and win," added Luce. "He definitely left his mark on our program in many more ways than just the record book. We're going to miss him for sure."
