ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Missouri’s three remaining wrestlers at the 2012 NCAA Championships were eliminated on Saturday evening in the round of 12. It marks the first time since 2001 that the Tiger haven’t crowned an All-American.

Alan Waters dropped his fourth match of the year, losing by a 5-2 score to No. 4 seed Jesse Delgado. Delgado landed two takedowns in the final period to separate himself from Waters. At 184, Mike Larson was defeated by Kevin Steinhaus by a 17-2 technical fall, while Brent Haynes was defeated by Joseph Kennedy of Lehigh, losing 10-3.
