ATLANTIC – For the first time in several years, the News-Telegraph had no area champions at the Rollin Dyer Invitational.

In a meet where 24 ranked wrestlers competed, and four championship matches featured ranked wrestlers going head-to-head for individual titles, Atlantic-CAM 170-pound junior Kadin Stutzman was the only area finalist at the prestigious meet, one of southwest Iowa’s toughest.

Stutzman, ranked eighth in the new Predicament rankings in Class 2A, battled hard but fell to third-ranked Carson Babcock 9-4. Babcock handed Stutzman his first loss on the year.

Babcock and Stutzman basically traded takedowns and escapes for the first 1-1/2 periods before Babcock scored two back-to-back takedowns to build a 7-2 lead early in the third period. Stutzman got a reversal to cut his deficit to 7-4 but couldn’t maintain control, and after Babcock got the escape held on for the win.

Actually, it was a pretty decent day for hosting Atlantic, who had 13 wrestlers place in the top eight. Of those, senior 126-pounder Joe Weaver had the toughest bracket of the day and came out with a sixth-place showing. After getting a pair of wins to start the day, he dropped a semifinal matchup to Underwood’s Stevie Barnes, 9-3, before going on to his sixth-place finish. Barnes went on to win the meet’s Outstanding Wrestler award.

Ethan Follmann had the Trojans’ other best finish, bringing home bronze in the 120-pound bracket. He dropped a tough semifinal match to Bondurant-Farrar’s Rylie Anderson but came back with a pin and a sudden victory decision to finish the day well.

Finishing fifth for the Trojans were Cruz Weaver (113), Brenden Casey (195) and Devin McKay (220). In addition to Joe Weaver, sixth-place finishers were Jaxson Bell (132), Dante Hedrington (138), Tanner O’Brien (152), Jarrett Armstrong (160). Rounding out the placewinners were Clevi Johnson (106), Payton Fewson (182) and Tristan Dorscher (285), all of them coming in seventh.

“Kadin probably performed, finished as runner-up lost to a tough kid, returning placewinner from New Hampton/Turkey Valley,” said coach Tim Duff. “Those are the types of matches that Kadin needs to continue to improve and get better.

“We had a lot of guys finish in the top six, tough tournament. Hopefully, it’s something they can look at their results and evaluate and see how they can improve and get better.”

Among area schools, AHSTW’s Garrison Gettler was the only other area bronze medalist. At 160 pounds, Gettler bounced back from a quarterfinal pinfall loss to get a 4-3 win over Glenwood’s Tyler Boldra and then a forfeit victory. Denver Pauley was fourth at 170 for the Vikings.

Audubon’s Carter Andreasen (145) and Javyn Bladt (182) finished fourth to pace the Wheelers, while Riverside’s top wrestler – they only sent four wrestlers – was 220-pounder Ed Vicek.
