HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. -- Top-ranked Iowa extended its lead to 46 at the 57th Ken Kraft Midlands Championships by advancing 10 wrestlers to the semifinals.

The Hawkeyes have semifinalists in nine of the 10 weight classes, including two at 149 pounds. Of Iowa's 10 semifinalists, six are No. 1 seeds: Spencer Lee (125), Austin DeSanto (133), Max Murin (141), Alex Marinelli (165), Jacob Warner (197) and Tony Cassioppi (285). Iowa's other semifinalists include Pat Lugo (149), Vince Turk (149), Kaleb Young (157) and Abe Assad (184).

Northern Iowa sits in second place and has four wrestlers competing in the semifinals. Wisconsin, Illinois and Princeton round out the top five teams.

Nine of the 10 No. 1 seeds remain alive in the championship bracket. Top-ranked 149-pounder Austin O'Connor of UNC was pushed in the quarterfinals by Iowa's Jeren Glosser but prevailed 6-5. Glasser led 5-3 with under 20 seconds left. O'Connor picked up a point off a stall call and then secured a takedown to get the victory.

The nation's top three 133-pounders advanced to the semifinals. No. 1 DeSanto will face No. 9 Travis Piotrowski of Illinois, while No. 2 Seth Gross of Wisconsin will battle No. 3 Sebastian Rivera of Northwestern.

Army West Point's Markus Hartman, who knocked off top-seeded Quincy Monday of Princeton in the opening session, advanced to the semifinals at 157 pounds with a fall over Central Michigan's Logan Parks.

Wrestling resumes Monday with Session III at noon CT.
