    ST. LOUIS -- The Iowa Hawkeyes' quest to get back on the top of the podium got off to a strong start. In the first round of the 2021 NCAA Division I wrestling tournament, Iowa won all 10 of their matches and picked up bonus points in seven of those bouts.

    Spencer Lee (125), Austin DeSanto (133), Jaydin Eierman (141), Kaleb Young (157), Alex Marinelli (165), Michael Kemerer (174) and Anthony Cassioppi (285) all picked up bonus-point victories, and the squad finished with 19 team points.

    Following in the top five were Penn State (17), Missouri (14) and Arizona State and North Carolina State tied at fourth with 13 points.

    The Hawkeyes experienced the most trouble at 197 pounds. No. 28 Nick Reenan (North Carolina State), a Final X veteran, caught No. 5 Jacob Warner early with a headlock. Warner fought hard to avoid the fall but still ended up down 6-0. He fought hard to get back in the match, but still trailed 7-4 late in the third period. With about 10 seconds left in the bout, Warner got in on a takedown attempt. As he finished the takedown, the referee hit Reenan for stalling. Those scores tied the match, and Warner went on to win the bout with a takedown in sudden victory.

    Eight of the nine Penn State wrestlers advanced with only 165 pounder No. 23 Joe Lee coming up short against No. 10 Travis Wittlake (Oklahoma State).

    The signature victory of the round came from true freshman No. 23 Robert Howard at 125 pounds. He had previously wrestled his first-round opponent, No. 10 Malik Heinselman (Ohio State) twice on the season and dropped a pair of 5-2 decisions. Howard was able to reverse that result on Thursday. He caught his opponent on his back and nearly scored the fall. The fall did not materialize, but he held on for the 6-4 victory.

    Another highlight match of the round came at 165 pounds. No. 3 Jake Wentzel (Pittsburgh) held on for a 1-0 victory against Drexel's Evan Barczak. Barczak appeared to finish at takedown as time expired. The points went up on the board, and he appeared to have pulled off the upset. However, after video review, the takedown was finished after the clock expired, and Wentzel advanced to the next round.

    The biggest upset of the season came at 197 pounds. No. 2 Eric Schultz (Nebraska) finished second in the Big Ten and entered the tournament with a 10-1 record. In the first round on Thursday, he faced off against Owen Pentz (North Dakota State). Schultz held a 2-0 lead in the second period. However, Pentz hit a roll from the bottom, caught Schultz on his back and collected the fall.

    In addition to that upset, there were three wrestlers seeded seventh suffered upsets in the round. At 141, No. 26 Colin Valdiviez (Northwestern) knocked off Ian Parker (Iowa State) via 8-5 decision. Also in the morning session, No. 26 Johnny Lovett (Central Michigan) took a 3-2 decision over Jarrett Jacques (Missouri) at 157. Finally, at 197 No. 26 Jake Woodley (Oklahoma) defeated Rocky Elam (Missouri).

    Tonight's second session is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. CT.
