EBF's Glosser earns 100th win; Rockets win at New London, Davis County

BLOOMFIELD — How do you celebrate achieving 100 career victories on the high school wrestling mat?

By going out and winning 101, of course.

Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont junior Jeren Glosser picked up Tuesday right where he left off Saturday, where Glosser earned a career milestone and the 138-pound championship at New London's Jeremy Fulk Classic. Having earned his 100th career victory on the way to the title, Class 1A's second-ranked grappler at 138 continued to add to his win total Tuesday night in Bloomfield by pinning Davis County's Austin White in a 145-pound match.

The win was part of a big night for the second-ranked team in Class 1A as EBF earned its first win over a South Central Conference opponent. The Rockets earned four pins against the Mustangs in a 63-15 victory.

Glosser was one of six individual championships on Saturday in New London, joining Tucker Black (145), Treg Van Dorin (160), Tyler Foubert (170) and Dillon Pigsley (182). EBF had seven wrestlers compete in the the finals with six bringing home titles as the Rockets won the team title with 201 points, outscoring Oskaloosa by 28.

Centerville finished ninth in team points. The Big Reds scored 54.5 points in the tournament.

On Tuesday, EBF got pins from Glosser, Foubert, Pigsley and a fall by Anthony Rea over Sully Holman in the 106-pound contest. Davis County scored four wins against the Rockets in the SCC dual, highlighted by Ben Kincart's pin of Luke Welch in the night's heavyweight encounter.

As a team, the Mustangs bounced back on their home mat to pick up two dual wins on the night over Centerville (45-18) and Wayne (54-6). Kincart, Dylan Dekraai (170) and Spencer Bassett (160) all picked up a pair of pins in the wins over the Big Reds and Falcons.

Treye Rinehart (138) and Bradley Irwin (145) both earned pins for Centerville against the Mustangs.
