Spartan wrestlers 4th at packed Ft. Madison invite

Dual wins against Clinton and Maquoketa

FORT MADISON– Solon crowned two champs and came away with fourth place at a crowded Fort Madison Invitational Dec. 19.
Hayden Taylor (160 pounds) and Gage Marty (220) captured first place, while Lucas Kampman (170) took second and Caleb Ebert (152) came in third.
Dubuque Hempstead walked away with the team title, rolling up 248.5 points. From there, it was the best of the rest with Cedar Rapids Kennedy a solid second with 169.5 and Burlington Notre Dame third with 145.5.
The Spartans’ 141.5 points edged out host Fort Madison (141) for fourth.
Solon co-head wrestling coach Aaron Hadenfeldt thought the team wrestled well.
“We were missing some regulars from our lineup, but ending up top-four was a nice way to head into break,” he noted.
Taylor was named Thomas Walljasper Outstanding Wrestler of the tournament.
“He beat a kid ranked No. 1 in Missouri and went after the kid,” Hadenfeldt reported.
Taylor pinned his way into the semifinals, where he earned a technical fall (18-1) over Kendal Pugh of Louisa-Muscatine. In the championship, he took a 3-0 decision against Wyatt Haynes of Liberty-Wentzville.
“That's the kind of thing we expect from Hayden,” Hadenfeldt continued. “He's unstoppable when he wrestles like he's capable and that helps show the younger guys what it's supposed to look like.”
Marty pinned his way through the tournament, defeating Clear Creek-Amana’s Tyler Steines in the quarterfinal (0:54), Van Buren County’s Brant Tedrow in the semifinal (0:56) and Hempstead’s Adam Ward (2:56) in the title match.
Kampman took a 5-0 decision in his quarterfinal and earned a major decision over Kennedy’s Alex Koch (10-2) in the semis before falling to Notre Dame’s C.J. Walrath in the final.
Ebert won third place in sudden victory over Kennedy’s Divion Ocheltree.
Lawson Sinwell (120), Tyler Hancox (195) and Nash Altman (285) were fifth for the Spartans. Milo Ashbacker (126), Jakobe Lahr (152) and Erich Karsten (285) were sixth.
Sinwell and Ashbacker, along with Tyson Wheeler (106) and Kyler Jessup (113) are all freshmen seeing regular time in the varsity ranks.
“They are going to have some ups and downs this year, but we're excited about what their future holds,” Hadenfeldt said. “They get after it.”
Jessup and Sinwell both picked up wins for Solon during a quadrangular meet at Maquoketa with Clinton and West Liberty Thursday, Dec. 17.
The Spartans picked up healthy wins over Clinton (70-12) and host Maquoketa (51-18), but fell to the Comets (43-36).
“We knew coming into the night that we were going to have competitive duals with all three teams,” Hadenfeldt observed. “We were out a few starters, but every team is going through the same thing this year. Overall, we were proud of the effort.”
Clinton scored the first six points against Solon, but the Spartans posted the next 58 in the 70-12 win. Solon benefitted from five forfeits, but Clinton won at only two weights. Ebert, Kampman, Marty, Altman, Jessup and Sinwell all won by fall. Lahr added a major decision.
Sinwell, Ebert, Lahr, Taylor and Hancox earned pins against Maquoketa in the 51-18 victory. Solon never trailed, jumping out to an 18-0 lead and winning six straight in the back half of the order.
Ebert, Taylor, Kampman and Altman provided pins against West Liberty in the loss.
“We've got some momentum going into break and we're looking to build on that,” Hadenfeldt said. “The upperclassmen are doing a nice job leading the younger guys through what a wrestling season looks like. It's a grind, but they're showing how it's supposed to be done.”
The Spartans are scheduled to return to the mat hosting Anamosa, Keokuk, Midland, Muscatine and Vinton-Shellsburg for the Solon Duals Saturday, Jan. 2, 2021.
