AREA WRESTLING ACTION: Rocket grapplers reign in Tri-County Invite title

THORNBURG — Third-ranked Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont picked up an impressive early season tournament title on Saturday. Five Rocket wrestlers crowned five champions on the way to scoring 230 points, besting Iowa Valley by 23 to take the Tri-County Invitational.

Seventh-ranked sophomore Jeren Glosser won his first two matches of the year, pinning West Branch’s Max Kober and Iowa Valley’s Drake Healey to win the 126-pound title for EBF. Second-ranked sophomore Blake Marlof also scored three pins in just under five minutes to win the 132-pound crown.

Fifth-ranked senior Jason Crosby also picked up a title for the Rockets, beating Iowa Valley’s Logan Loftus 2-1 in the finals at 138. Tucker Black (145) and fourth-ranked Dillion Pigsley (182) also scored their first three wins of the season to open their seasons with tournament titles.

Tri-County Montezuma finished fourth in their home tournament, scoring 144 points while crowning two champions. Freshman Mason Garber won his first three matches of the year to take the 103-pound crown while second-ranked junior Tyler Foubert improved to 8-0 by winning the 160-pound title for the Trojans.

Pekin finished in a tie for fifth with Lynnville-Sully despite not crowning a champion. Al Chapman’s team had three third-place finishes from Brandon Baayen (113), Austyn Vogel (145) and Thomas Slaney (182) to go with three sixth-place winners to score the Panthers’ 81 points.

Cardinal and Van Buren finished in a 10th-place tie as the Southeast Iowa Superconference South rivals each scored 34 points. The Comets brought home the 113-pound title as junior Ryan Cale edged English Valley’s Blake Ealy, 2-0, for his eighth win in nine matches.

No. 3 (1A) EBF and TCM both head to Central Decatur for a quadrangular with Clarke at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Van Buren joins West Burlington-Notre Dame at Pekin for a triangular while Cardinal and New London/Winfield-Mount Union compete at Highland on Thursday.
