My thoughts are the 125/130-pound matches will be worth the price of admission. Hinschberger vs. Colon and Vaske. I’d love to see those. With Vaske and Hinschberger going to IIAC schools (Hinschberger to Coe and Vaske to Wartburg) we may see the first of many good matches in the future.

  1. This is not a meet it is a marathon. I wish they would change the format and have a tournament form with the champoinship being a dual in the evening. Welcome back KJ

  2. I understand your point, luvhurtz. A ton of matches.

    How were/are the M’town Thursday Night Matchups?

    Thanks for the welcome back. It’s good to be back.

    Joe Colon (Clear Lk) dec. Hinschberger (BPlaine), 7-6
    Jake Thome (DBosco) dec. Bryant Hummel (Clarinda), 7-1
    Alex Burkle (NLinn) dec. Hummel (Clarinda), 2-1
    Keelan Moore (WSR) dec. Dakota Halligan (DavWest), 9-5
    Quinten Haynes (WatEast) dec. Ted Kruger (Sib-Ochy), not sure of the score
    Bart Reiter (Dbosco) dec. Derrick Miner (SLP), not sure of the score

    I’ll try to get other official results and update scores.
