Last match pin propels North Scott to Keith Young title

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- With a pin in the 285 pound championship final by Cegan Long, North Scott, Iowa was able to overtake No. 30 Bettendorf, Iowa in the point standings at the Keith Young Invitational on Saturday. Both teams had five finalists, but North Scott had nine placers to the eight for Bettendorf; and the point stands were 191.5 for North Scott, and 190 for Bettendorf.

Joining Long as a weight class champion for North Scott was Mitch Bowman at 170 pounds. Runner-up finishers were Bret McKinney at 160, Justin Kreiter at 182, and Colin Kreiter at 195. Four of the five Bettendorf finalists won titles: Jacob Schwarm at 106, No. 20 Fredy Stroker at 126, Logan Ryan at 132, and Alex Hernandez at 152 with a 7-5 overtime decision over Jesse Ethertingon (Charles City, Iowa) in a battle of wrestlers that placed third at state last year.

An additional key factor in the team race on Saturday was the absence of three projected starters from the Bettendorf lineup. The Bulldogs' replacements at 120, 160, and 285 pounds all failed to place in the top six.
