Corvallis, Ore. – Wrestling’s sole Pac-10 Champion junior Colby Covington (Springfield, Ore.) will throw out the first pitch at Sunday’s Oregon State baseball game against Washington beginning at 1:00 p.m. at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field.
Covington, who wrestled at 174 pounds, will be representing the 2010 Pac-10 Championship wrestling team that finished the season with an 18-3 dual meet record. Covington led the team in pins with 15, the most since Oscar Wood in the 1998-99 season, and compiled a .851 winning percentage with a final 40-7 record.
