Settles takes title at J-Hawk Invitational

BY PCC STAFF

CEDAR RAPIDS – Fort Madison’s Danen Settles captured the heavyweight title at the J-Hawk Invitational on Saturday at Cedar Rapids Jefferson High School to highlight the Hounds 5th place finish.

Fort Madison finished with 148.5 points. Pleasant Valley won the team scoring with 194.5.

Settles, currently ranked 9th in the state at 285 according to IA Wrestle and The Predicament, won three of his four matches by decisions taking down Muscatine junior Togeh Deseh 3-1.

The match was even through one, but Settles chose to start the second period down and was able to escape 13 seconds into the period for the only point of the period. Deseh returned the favor in the third recording an escape from the down start 20 seconds into the third period. But with less than 15 seconds remaining in the third, tied at 1-1, Settles was able to get a take down for the 3-1 lead and the championship.

Settles is now 28-3 on the year.

Diego Lozano, who broke back into the latest rankings at No. 9 in the IA Wrestle publication at 195 lbs, but isn’t ranked in the latest Predicament listings, took third place after stumbling in third round wrestling at 220 lbs.

Up against Dubuque Hempstead’s Alex Hudson, Lozano who’s been quick off the whistle all year, scored a takedown at the 1:38 mark of period one. But Hudson quickly reversed position and almost scored a pin in the frentic first minutes. After all was said in period 1, Hudson led 8-2. Hudson would score another take down just :10 seconds into period 2 before getting Lozano’s shoulders to the mat 5 seconds later.

Lozano would go on to win his next two matches including a 17-2 technical fall over Mason Olmstead of Alburnett for 3rd place. Lozano scored three 3-point near falls, two in the first period, to take early control of the match.

Other place winners for the Bloodhounds included Emmett Kruse (106) 4th, Matthew Steffensmeier (113) 4th, Owen Kruse (120) 4th, Gavin Wiseman (132) 4th, Mason Schau (152) 6th, Will Larson (138) 7th, and Nathan Steffensmeier (160) 8th place.
