ST. LOUIS -- Iowa lost its undefeated streak but managed to hold onto the top spot at the 2021 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships in St. Louis. After the first day, the Hawkeyes have accumulated 33.5 team points and hold a 5.5-point lead over second place Penn State.

No. 1 Spencer Lee (125), No. 4 Austin DeSanto (133), No. 1 Jaydin Eierman (141), No. 12 Max Murin (149), No. 1 Alex Marinelli (165), No. 1 Michael Kemerer (174), No. 5 Jacob Warner (197) and No. 5 Tony Cassioppi (285) all made it to the quarterfinals.

In one of Iowa's only two defeats in the tournament so far, No. 5 Kaleb Young dropped a 3-2 decision against No. 12 Brady Berge (Penn State). The Nittany Lion scored an early takedown and held on for the victory. Young tried to close the gap in the third period, but Berge's defense was too stout. If Penn State is able to cut into Iowa's lead in the team race, this match could make a sizable difference. Berge will face No. 4 Jesse Dellavecchia (Rider) in the next round.

Penn State advanced seven to the quarterfinals. Joining Berge in the round will be No. 2 Roman Bravo-Young (133), No. 2 Nick Lee (141), No. 3 Carter Starocci (174), No. 1 Aaron Brooks (184), No. 15 Michael Beard (197) and No. 9 Greg Kerkvliet (285). The squad is down to eight competitors overall after No. 23 Joe Lee (165) dropped his first consolation match and was eliminated from the tournament.

Missouri currently sits in third place with 23.5 points. No. 6 Matt Schmitt (133), No. 6 Allan Hart (141), No. 3 Brock Mauller (149) and No. 6 Keegan O'Toole (165) advanced to the quarterfinals for the Tigers.

Oklahoma State's Boo Lewallen celebrates after beating Campbell's Josh Heil (Photo/Tony Rotundo, WrestlersAreWarriors.com)

In a match that will likely be talked about for years, No. 4 Boo Lewallen (Oklahoma State) avoided an upset bid from No. 20 Josh Heil (Campbell) at 149 pounds. The controversy started with a near takedown from the Cowboy. He appeared to secure the two-point move and secure the match. However, it was not awarded, and the call stood following a video review. The match then restarted with Heil holding a 6-5 lead with seven seconds left.

The action started, and the two appeared to go out of bounds after around five seconds of wrestling. However, the clock did not start. The match was restarted with seven seconds still remaining on the clock. Lewallen made the most of the remaining time and scored the match-deciding two points. Following the match, NCAA Wrestling National Coordinator of Officials Tim Shiels indicated that they could not use replay to update the clock.


Stanford's Real Woods gets in on a single leg against OU's Dom Demas (Photo/Tony Rotundo, WrestlersAreWarriors.com)

No. 21 Real Woods (Stanford), who needed extra matches just to qualify for the tournament, continued his strong run through the 141-pound bracket. After defeating rival No. 12 Grant Willits (Oregon State) earlier in the day, he faced off against Big 12 champion No. 5 Dom Demas (Oklahoma). It was a 1-1 match until Woods scored a four-point move in sudden victory to take the victory. He will meet No. 4 Tariq Wilson (North Carolina State) in the next round.

At 165 pounds, reigning champion No. 4 Mekhi Lewis (Virginia Tech) advanced to the quarterfinals with a hard-fought victory over No. 12 Tanner Skidgel (Navy). He appeared to be in immense pain throughout the contest, and it seems he is still dealing with the linger effects of a shoulder injury he suffered during a dual against Pittsburgh back in February. Lewis is still in the field as of Thursday night, but it seems entirely possible that the injury will impact his performance going forward.

Friday's quarterfinals are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. CT.

How A-bout this divided format? I'm an instant fan. Allows me to get my brackets up to the minute.

I'm hoping that that never changes after COVID.
