UPDATED: Oliver Ames Senior Passes Away Suddenly

The Oliver Ames community is mourning the death of a senior wrestling captain today. Devin Ness tragically died of a brain aneurysm.

The Oliver Ames High School community is mourning the death of a student.

Devin Ness, a senior at the high school, tragically died Friday morning.

Ness, who was a captain for the Oliver Ames wrestling team, suddenly became sick last night, according to OA athletic director Bill Matthews. He was taken to the hospital where he passed away.

"He did die of an aneurysm," Oliver Ames Principal Wes Paul said. "He was dog sitting for his cousins in West Bridgewater. He didn’t feel well and next thing you know he wasn’t doing well at all and they called an ambulance . He went to the hospital. He got brought to Boston Medical and he was pronounced dead this morning around 9:30. That’s unfortunately what happens with an aneurysm – they just come out of nowhere."

OA has canceled all athletic events today. The Tigers basketball teams were expected to take on Foxborough and swimming was expected to compete against Milford.
