FAIRFIELD – The Fort Madison Bloodhounds are working toward a solid finish to the regular season as four Hound wrestlers came away with titles Saturday at Southern Iowa Classic.

Fort Madison won the tournament with 288 points a full 50 points ahead of second-place Albia.

Seniors Gavin Wiseman wrestling at 152 and Jakob McGowan at 182 both brought home titles as did sophomores Teague Smith and Ike Thacher at 160 and 195.

Wiseman rolled through his bracket with three pins getting a pin at 3:23 over Eli Zanoni of Albia in the championship match. Both of Wiseman’s other matches were by fall in less than a minute. Wiseman stands at 33-9 on the year after his four wins Saturday He is currently ranked 9th in the state in Class 3A at 152.

McGowan scored a pin over Albia’s Devin Kimball in exactly one minute before recording a 9-1 major decision over Burlington’s Caleb Zaugg. In the title match, McGowan recorded a pin with 20 seconds left in the match over Washington’s Logan Frazer. The Hound trailed in the match 4-3 going into the second period, but racked up four points midway through the second on a take down and near fall to take a 7-5 lead into the final two minutes.

With McGowan starting on the bottom in the third, he scored an immediate escape and then a take down before being awarded a stalling point and then securing the pin for the title.

Ike Thacher scored a quick pin in his first match at 195 and then received a forfeit when Burlington’s Nolan Simpson couldn’t go. The sophomore then found himself against Fairfield’s Theodore Metcalf and almost got the pin in the first period getting a take down and near fall to go up 4-0.

Metcalf would get an escape half way through the period and neither wrestler would score again until Thacher got out of a hold after starting down in the 3rd period for an escape and the 5-1 final score.

Wrestling at 160, Smith scored falls in both his first two matches at 16 seconds and 31 seconds, but had to go the distance against Washington’s Chase Greiner for the title.

Smith scored two take downs in each of the first two periods, but Greiner was able to wiggle free of three of them. In the third period, Smith scored three take downs two of which Greiner got 1-point escapes, but Smith never let Greiner get any momentum in the final period preserving the win.

Daniel Sokolik was runner up at 220 lbs after falling to Colley Billingsly of Washington in 56 seconds. The junior got on the board first with a take down, but Billingsly was able to work a 2-point reversal and secure the pin on the move for the win.

Logan Pennock also made a run for the title going 4 for 5 in a pool bracket at 120 pounds. Pennock recorded four wins in his first four matches including pins over Burlington and PCM Monroe. He got technical falls over Mt. Pleasant and Knoxville before falling 5-2 to Brodie Connor (35-3) of Albia.

Connor scored a take down early in the match and was able to push it to a 3-point nearfall before time ran out. Pennock would get a take down in the 2nd period, but was unable to capitalize as neither wrestler would score again in the match leaving Pennock with second place at 120 lbs.

Jordan Hartman and Nolan Riddle each brought home 3rd place finishes, Hartman at 170 lbs and Riddle at 132 lbs. Henry Wiseman took 5th place at 138.
