Iowa totals 8 quarter-finalists
Four more Hawkeyes punched their tickets to the quarterfinals Thursday night, three with bonus points, including top-seeded Alex Marinelli (165) and Michael Kemerer (174).
Nelson Brands at 184 was the only loss of the second half of session two as Iowa finished 18-2 for the day. Jacob Warner (197) and Tony Cassioppi (Hwt.) also advanced in the late session.
Twelve of the Hawkeyes’ 18 victories Thursday were with bonus points, including six major decisions, five technical falls and one pin.
Heavyweight Gannon Gremmel made it two quarterfinalists for Iowa State and Samuel Colbray (184) and Marcus Coleman (197) stayed alive with consolation wins.
Parker Keckeisen stayed undefeated at 184 and advanced to the quarterfinals for Northern Iowa, the second Panther to move on. No. 33-seed Austin Yant earned a consolation win.
125 pounds: Schroder proves Big Ten success was not a fluke: The 2021 Big Ten finalist earned a huge win against a conference foe in the second round of the NCAA tournament as he beat Michigan State’s Rayvon Foley to advance in the championship bracket. He’ll have Spencer Lee next in a rematch of the 2021 Big Ten finals where Lee teched Schroder in the second period.
Quarterfinals for 125 pounds:
- No. 1 Spencer Lee vs. No. 9 Devin Schroder
- No. 5 Brody Teske vs. No. 4 Drew Hildebrant
- No. 3 Brian Courtney vs. No. 6 Jakob Camacho
- No. 7 Taylor LaMont vs. No. 2 Sam Latona
Quarterfinals for 133 pounds:
- No. 1 Daton Fix vs. No. 8 Chris Cannon
- No. 5 Micky Phillippi vs. No. 4 Austin DeSanto
- No. 3 Korbin Myers vs. No. 6 Matt Schmitt
- No. 10 Louie Hayes vs. No. 2 Roman Bravo-Young
141 pounds: Mr. March falls to Simon: Chad Red, the Nebraska star who has been known to catch fire at the NCAA tournament, dropped his second-round match to Dresden Simon of Central Michigan, as the Chips continue their impressive tournament. Simon held on for the 6-3 match to punch his ticket to the quarters, and he’ll see Jaydin Eierman next.
141 pounds: Real Woods is back: The 2021 Pac-12 runner-up scored a huge win against All-American Dom Demas in overtime with a savvy takedown that sends him into the quarterfinals as the No. 21 seed. That was a redemption match for him, as he needed a wildcard to earn a spot at this tournament but has now proven that he belongs. He’ll have All-American Tariq Wilson next.
Quarterfinals for 141 pounds:
- No. 1 Jaydin Eierman vs. No. 9 Dresden Simon
- No. 21 Real Woods vs. No. 4 Tariq Wilson
- No. 10 Zach Sherman vs. No. 2 Nick Lee
- No. 3 Sebastian Rivera vs. No. 6 Allan Hart
149 pounds: Max Murin finds a way: The Iowa 149-pounder flies under the radar because of the ridiculous dominance of his teammates, but it’s clear that Murin is in the All-American conversation, and his performance in the second-round sent a message that he is not to be discounted or disrespected. Murin was gritty and tough in his 5-2 win over Ridge Lovett, and he’s the third Hawkeye into the quarters.
