BY PCC STAFF

FAIRFIELD – The Fort Madison Bloodhounds cruised to the team title at the Southern Iowa Classic wrestling tournament Saturday in Fairfield, and Diego Lozano won an individual title at 220 lbs.

The Bloodhounds finished with 204 points way ahead of Eddyville Blakesburg-Fremont’s 134-point second-place finish.

Lozano spent less than a minute and a half on the mat the whole day cruising through the 220 lb. bracket with three pins. The senior took out Keokuk’s Trystan O’Connor (21-15) in just :24 in the title match.

Seniors Owen Kruse and Danen Settles each captured second-place finishes for the Bloodhounds.

Kruse got a bye in the first round and scored a pin over Fairfield’s Jonah Cooper in just :27. Kruse then scored a 9-0 major decision over Brodie Connor of Albia, before falling to Taylor Huggins of Davis County 15-6 in the championship match.

Settles recorded a pin over EBFs Trapper Hemm at 1:25 into the first period. Settles (33-6) on the year then got a sudden victory over PCM of Monroe’s Seth Griener, before taking a medical forfeit in the finals, which gave Jace Smith, also of PCM, the 285 lb. title.
