    LeValley qualifies for U.S. Olympic Team Trials

    LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Former Bucknell wrestler Kevin LeValley has qualified for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials, which will be held April 21-22 in Iowa City, Iowa. LeValley, who is one of 88 athletes that have earned spots in the Trials, qualified based on his third-place finish in the 66kg/145.5-pound weight class at this past weekend's New York Athletic Club International.

    LeValley, who graduated from Bucknell this past May as the program's all-time wins leader (127), was a two-time All-American during his Bison career. A freestyle wrestler, LeValley is one of six athletes in his weight class to have already secured spots in the U.S. Olympic Trials.

    Currently a member of the Minnesota Storm Wrestling Club, LeValley is taking graduate classes at the University of Minnesota and helping coach the No. 3-ranked Gophers.

    LeValley, as a senior in 2010-11, became just the second Bucknell wrestler to claim an EIWA individual title when he won the 149-pound bracket in Sojka Pavilion. He posted a 76-11 record over his final two campaigns and those 11 losses were by a combined 21 points.

    A three-time EIWA placewinner and NCAA qualifier, LeValley is one of just five Bucknell wrestlers to post at least two 30-win campaigns and his 42 victories in 2009-10 established a new school record. He was 20-10 against ranked foes his junior and senior years, while also becoming the first grappler at Bucknell to win an individual Midlands Championships crown and win at the NWCA All-Star Classic.

    LeValley climbed as high as No. 2 in the national rankings as a senior. He finished his career with 59 dual wins, a 22-8 EIWA dual mark and nine career pins.
