With a ninth-place team finish and a pair of state medalists, including a champion, it was a productive weekend for Pacific at the MSHSAA wrestling championships at Mizzou Arena in Columbia.

The Indians finished ninth in Class 3 with 47 points.

Earning all-state honors with top six finishes in their respective weight classes were senior Austin Repp (champion at 170 pounds) and sophomore Josh Franek (third at 120).

Also competing for Pacific were junior Dalton Voyles at 160 and sophomore Lane Smith at 138.

“It was a good weekend. I was hoping to get Dalton on the podium, but he wrestled in a deep weight class,” said Pacific Head Coach Rob Schimsa. “It’s nice to finish in the top 10. It was a pretty good year all-around with a conference championship and a top 10 finish at state.”

Repp claimed his second straight state title by pinning Neosho’s Kyle Hostetter in 1:46 in the finals. He’s the first wrestler in the state to ever have a perfect 58-0 record.

“I’m excited, even though I don’t show it,” Repp said. “I just had to make sure to wrestle smart and not get in bad positions.”

To reach the finals, Repp:

• Pinned Warrensburg’s Ben Richner in 54 seconds;

• Pinned Lebanon’s Adrian Palmer in 1:31; and

• Pinned Kearney’s Dalton Lewis in 41 seconds.

Repp completed his high school career with a 203-15 overall record, ending with 78 consecutive victories, and had 155 career pins. He’s a four-time state qualifier and a three-time state medalist, placing third during his sophomore season.

“He’s just a special kid. It was a pleasure to have him in our program,” Schimsa said. “Kids like Austin don’t come around very often.”

Franek went 5-1 at state, ending with a 46-4 record. He won by decision over Neosho’s Gannon Millard in the third-place match, 4-2.

“I’m happy with third place. I lost in the quarterfinals, but came back and won the rest of my matches,” Franek said. “My goal was to get on the podium this year. I’m happy I got there.”

Franek’s quarterfinal loss was to Staley’s Trey Nelson, 4-2.

“Josh is a two-time state qualifier. He lost to a quality kid from Staley, but beat some good kids in the wrestlebacks,” Schimsa said. “With two years still left, I expect him to accomplish a lot of big things for us.”

Franek’s other wins were:

• Won by decision over Ladue’s Jonas Miller-Stockie, 10-3;

• Pinned Rockwood Summit’s Matt Stauder in 3:33;

• Won by decision over Belton’s Clayton Fenzl, 6-2; and

• Won by decision over Lebanon’s Dylan Burns, 5-0.

Voyles had a 1-2 state record, ending with a 48-9 record.

In the first round, Voyles was pinned by Raytown’s Braden Best in 3:48. He bounced back to win a 6-4 decision over Rolla’s Seth Veatch.

Voyles was then eliminated with a 10-3 loss to Lebanon’s Nick Brown.

“The 160-pound class was deep. A lot of good wrestlers filtered into 160 to avoid Austin at 170 and Leeth (Kearney’s Grant Leeth) at 152,” Schimsa said. “Dalton lost to two good kids and beat a solid kid from Rolla. Dalton is a two-time state qualifier. I can see him at 182 or 195 next year. He’s headed in the right direction.”

Smith lost both of his matches at state to finish with a 34-23 record. He lost a 6-2 decision to Ft. Zumwalt South’s Josh Kemper and an 8-0 major decision to Carthage’s Tyler Harden.

“Lane had a tough road by facing a district champion in the first round,” Schimsa said. “As a sophomore, it was a good experience for him and should help him down the road. I expect him to do very well for us in the next two years.”
