Freshmen pulling weight as FM takes title at Liberty duals



ST. CHARLES, Mo. - Three freshman medaled at Saturday's Liberty Invitational Duals to help lead the Bloodhounds to the tournament title.

The Bloodhounds went 4-1 on the day in St. Charles with their only loss coming on a 39-36 tough match with Camdenton (Mo.) in the championship bracket.

Fort Madison came back and beat previously unbeaten Liberty High School (Wentzville) to win the title at Francis Howell Central High School.

Freshman Henry Wiseman, wrestling at 106 lbs took a gold medal going 5-0 on the day recording three pinfalls with one in just :18 seconds over Camdenton's Vincent Bollinger. Wiseman also recorded pins in the Liberty dual and Marquette match. He won the other two by forfeit.

Freshman Teague Smith earned a silver medal at 152 scoring four pins in five wrestled matches on the day. His only loss was a 14-2 major decision to Francis Howell's Aiden Hernandez who took 5th place in Class 4 of the Missouri High School Championships in February.

Senior Owen Kruse also earned a silver medal with three pins and a 10-5 win over Camdenton's Cooper Rhodenizer at 132. Junior Gavin Wiseman, wrestling at 145, never wrestled a match into the 2nd period the whole day. Wiseman recorded three pins, one a match by forfeit and suffered a fall in the Marquette dual for his only loss of the day.

Freshman Isaac Thacher at 170 lbs went 4-1 for a silver medal. Thacher had a tight battle with Camdenton's Oliver Fensterman of Liberty and came out with a 6-5 decision. Thacher recorded two pins and won a fourth by forfeit. His only loss was a first-round fall in the Francis Howell dual.

Austin Miller also won a silver medal going 1-1 in matches including a 1:07 fall over Jackson Bushman of Liberty, while getting three wins by forfeit.

Emmett Kruse (113), Matthew Steffensmeier (120), Brock Califf (132), Mason Schau (160), and Austin Ensminger (182) each had three wins on the day.
