157- Steven Lawrence (28-7) comes in as 4 seed and loses to 5 seed. He then beat former Kentucky state champ by fall in the blood round. He will place.

141 Gaige Torres is the 4 seed at 16-7. He is in the semis. Gaige finished 7th last year. 

Gaige's senior year he finished 2nd to Brock Hudkins and had wins over Breydon Bailey and Dawson Combest. His junior year he finished 2nd to Chad Red and had wins over Zach Melloh and Ngun Uk. He definitely wrestled The Who's who's in Indiana wrestling in his final two years in HS.

A note about Lawrence's loss.... it came to his teammate in SV.  Lawrence was the 4 seed, his teammate was the 5 seed.  Another example of allowing more than one per team in a weight class.  I don't know if there is a max # of wrestlers per team that can qualify, but Grand View and Indiana Tech have the most at 12 each.

Here are results from the guys Navy80 didn't mention and a few notes.....
@ 125 Justin Portillo of Grand View is also in the semifinals.  Portillo is a 2-time Iowa State Champ and made two appearances at the IHPO, finishing 1st in 2015 and 3rd in 2014.

@125 Miller will face 11 seed Koby Millner in the Semifinal. Looks like a pretty good chance it will be 1 Portillo vs 2 Miller for the title.  Hayden Lee lost in the blood round and is eliminated.

@133 Early faces 3 seed Gresh Jones in the Semifinal. 

@141 Torres faces 1 seed David Berg

@149 Justin Atkinson fell in the Quarters then won in the blood round.  Robert Humphrey won in the blood round and will face Atkinson this morning.  Bailey Moore was eliminated in the blood round.

@157 Mason Gaines and @165 Jacob Gross were eliminated in last nights consis.

@174 Nathan Walton lost in the Quarters and won his blood round match over Jarod Swank, eliminating the fellow Hoosier. Swank had earlier eliminated Jake Weimer, so the Hoosiers were forced to take each other out.

@184 both Aaron Mosely and Sam Osho were eliminated in the blood round

@285 Nick Fowler lost 3-2 decisions in the Quarters and in the blood round

Early results before I have to run out for awhile...

@125 Sawyer Miller won by fall at 1:00 and moves on the to Final.  He'll face 12 seed Randy McCray who took out 1 seed Justin Portillo

@133 Enrique Early won his semifinal 10-7 and moves on to face 1 seed Shiquan Hall of Grand View.  Hall beat Early 2-1 in the Grand View Open in November.

@141 Gaige Torres lost by major 15-4.  It was tied at 4 entering the 3rd period and Torres gave up a reversal and then a pair of 4 point nearfalls.  A riding time point made it 15-4.

So Indiana will have two wrestlers in the Final vying for an NAIA title with several others still alive in the consis who will place and earn AA status.  Not bad!

Indiana and IN Tech has two new NAIA National Champions!  

@125 Sawyer Miller (South Adams) gets the escape in the 3rd period and a takedown in sudden victory to get a 4-2 win for the title.

@133 Erique Early (FW Snider) wins 4-2 TB-1.  Down 2-1 in the first :30 TB period, Early got a takedown to take a 3-2 lead into the 2nd :30 period.  He chose bottom and was let up to go up 4-2 and avoided a takedown to win.

Those were the only two former Hoosier HS'ers in the finals.

NOTE: My apologies but I have been typing Early's first name as Enrique but the correct spelling is Erique.

CONGRATS to both Sawyer and Erique!

DIII....157 Jared Timberman (Wabash/New Pal) vs most likely #5 Murray (has pigtail match).

Not sure how I missed him.  Knew he had qualified, but didn't mark him as such on the spreadsheet.

Also missed DII 141 Angelo Robles (UIndy/Dec.Central) and DII 197 Brian Wagner (UIndy/New Palestine).

1st Session Results from both DII & DIII

Weights in green are still in the championship bracket.  Red = wrestler eliminated. Black = Alive in consolation bracket.

DII
141 - Angelo Robles - lost to #1 ranked Brandon Ball 1-0. He faces unranked Jered Sublet this evening.
149 - #8 ranked Isaiah Kemper - won 14-6.  Faces #3 ranked Kyle Rathman in the Quarterfinal 
157 - Skyler Lykins - won 9-8 over #6 ranked Cortez Arrendondo. Faces unranked Collin Ayers in the Quarterfinal
165 - #7 ranked Kyle Jolas - lost 10-5 to #2 ranked Rodney Shepard.  In a consi pigtail match, Kyle wins over Sheldon Struble of Uindy 2-0 to advance to tonight's session where he'll face unranked Dan Fillipek this evening.
197 - Brian Wagner - lost a pigtail match to Freddie Nixon 9-4.  He loses again to #3 ranked Levi Niebauer 8-2 and is eliminated.


DIII
133 - Owen Doster - lost pigtail to #4 ranked Bobby Jordan 6-5. Owen won his consi pigtail in dominant fashion with a 2nd period fall.  The score was 12-0 with 4 backs about to be awarded when he got the fall. He'll face unranked Chase Petty this evening.
141 - Jordan Napier - lost by fall to #7 ranked David Flynn 
149 - #6 ranked Kris Rumph - won 4-2 over unranked Ryan Snow. Faces #5 ranked Brett Kaliner in Quarterfinal.
157 - Jared Timberman - lost by Inj Def to #5 ranked Brandon Murray
165 - #10 ranked Kyle Hatch - won 6-2 over Michael Suarez.  Faces #8 ranked Eddie Smith in Quarterfinal

285 - Wade Ripple - won his pigtail match by fall and lost his next match by 1st period fall.  Ripple's match shows how quickly things can turn.  He got in on a single leg and had it lifted above the waste twice, yet couldn't get the takedown.  He tried switching to a standing cradle and his opponent slipped out.  He then got taken down and turned fairly quickly to go down 6-0.  Another turn followed by the fall in a match where he likely should have been up 2-0 and riding on top.  He'll face unranked Jerhett Lee this evening.

DI Conference tournaments started yesterday.

EIWA: 

125: Jose Diaz of Franklin & Marshall loses both and is eliminated.

165: Cael McCormick of Army wins twice, including a wild 16-13 win in the quarterfinals. He's the #4 seed and needs to finish top 4 to get an automatic bid to NCAAs. He next faces the #1 seed. Sadly, due to an upset on the other side of the bracket, he'll probably face the #2 seed in the wrestlebacks if he were to lose the semi-final match. If he doesn't win one of those, he's outside the top 4 (I can't find evidence that the EIWA wrestles a true top 4 in instances of NCAA qualification, but I'm not 100% certain). Nonetheless, Cael's RPI and Coaches' Panel ranking suggest he's got a good shot at an at-large bid if he ends up 5th or 6th in the tournament.

174: Ben Harvey, the #3 seed for Army, wins his first match but gets upset by the #6 in the quarters before coming back to win a wrestleback match. He'll face an unseeded guy this morning before probably seeing the #4 seed in the consi semifinals. If he wins both of those, he's assured a top 4 spot and one of the 5 automatic bids at his weight.

MAC:

125: Drew Hildebrandt of Central Michigan comes in as the #2 seed in a deep weight class and takes care of business, getting a fall and a 6-2 win to advance to the championship and guarantee himself one of the 4 NCAA slots up for grabs. Congratulations, Drew!! It's got to feel good after last season's narrow miss. If Drew were able to upset the top seed McGee of Old Dominion in the final, he'll probably be in line for a national seed at NCAAs.

At the DII Championship 

149 - Isaiah Kemper loses 7-4 to #1 ranked and undefeated Chris Eddins Jr.  He will face #2 ranked James Pleski who got upset in the quarterfinal  next.  He is guaranteed no worse than 6th Place.

At the DIII Championship

165 - Kyle Hatch lost a tough one to #1 ranked and undefeated Lucas Jeske.  Kyle jumped out to a 6-0 lead but couldn't hold off and a riding time point tied it up at 7 and took it to SV where he lost 9-7.  He'll face #9 ranked Mark Choinski next and can finish no worse than 6th.

174 Darden Schurg - Won his semifinal 11-6 and will face #2 ranked and 2 seed Jairod James of Mount Union in tonight's final for the Championship.

I want to give kudos to IU's Jake Kleimola (Merrillville).  While he was a IN HS State Champion, wrestling at 197 in college hasn't been easy.  

2017 - He redshirted his freshman year and went 3-4 with his only wins against wrestlers from Eastern Michigan (non-starter), DII Findlay and Muskegon Community College.

2018  - Things didn't get much better as he stepped into a starting role for IU, obviously before he was ready.  Jake went 0-13 last year but only 4 of those lossed were major (or higher) decisions.  There were several close matches, including seven by one or two.

2019 - Jake finished a respectable 13-18 on the season with an 8th Place finish at the Big Ten Tournament.  That's a huge jump and one I thought should be recognized.  He has two more seasons to go.

SoCon Results
141 - Nathan Boston defeated Blake Mulkey 3-2 for 3rd Place.  The SoCon has only 1 allocation at 141, so either will have to get an at large bid to make it to the NCAA Championships.  Boston has a shot, Mulkey's season should be finished.  

285 - Connor Tolley lost in the semifinal and followed that up with a win in the consolation semifinal.  Connor finished in 4th Place losing by fall.  He'll need some luck and an at large to qualify for the NCAA Championships.

EIWA Results
165 - Cael McCormick (Army/Yorktown) finished in 2nd Place and qualifies for the NCAA Championships.

174 - Brian Harvey (Army/Cathedral) finished in 5th Place and qualifies for the NCAA Championships

MAC Results
125 - Drew Hildebrandt lost the title match 5-2 to Michael McGee of Old Dominion.  With his 2nd Place finish, he qualifies for the NCAA Championships

Congrats to McCormick, Harvey, and Hildebrandt. Just to clarify, though, Mulkey and Tolley have a 0% chance of getting into NCAAs and Boston is a very long shot that sadly probably isn't getting in either. All 3 of those guys needed to win the tournament today.
