Area fans certainly will remember the 2014 MSHSAA Wrestling Championships.

Area wrestlers claimed two state titles with Pacific’s Austin Repp (170) and Union’s Dalton Kuenzel (182) winning Class 3 championship bouts Saturday at the Mizzou Arena in Columbia.

Both Repp and Kuenzel won their championship matches by pins.

Repp (58-0) captured his second consecutive 170-pound state title and capped an undefeated season by pinning Neosho’s Kyle Hostetter in 1:46. For the tournament Repp won his four matches by pins, spending a cumulative time of 4:42 on the mat.

Kuenzel (46-2) won all four of his matches by pins as well, finishing Winnetonka’s Markel Fluker in 3:05 in the title bout.

Another area wrestler, Washington’s Nicholas Solter (126) competed in a championship match, but lost and finished second.

Solter lost to Hannibal’s Tyler Janes by a 15-0 technical fall in 5:27.

Seven other area wrestlers earned state medals as well.

• Pacific’s Josh Franek (120) finished third in Class 3.

• Owensville’s Alton Harrell (195) finished the season with fourth place in Class 2.

Washington’s Cole Hamai (145) lost an 8-7 decision to Kearney’s Andrew Borden one round short of the medals. Hamai lost in overtime on the opening day to eventual state champion Johnny Blankenship of Platte County.

St. Clair’s Dustin Conner (170) lost a 6-0 decision to Dolles in the third round of wrestlebacks.
