With an 8-1 dual meet record, Pacific had the second-best team mark Friday and Saturday at the Hillsboro Wrestling Tournament.

De Soto’s 9-0 record was the best in the field.

“I’m happy with how we wrestled. We let a couple of matches get away from us, but it’s a good transfer for us going into the second half of the season and into February,” said Pacific Head Coach Rob Schimsa. “Our one loss was against De Soto. We didn’t match up real well with them. We had close wins over Union and Ft. Zumwalt South. It seems like every time we wrestle Union, it’s close.”

The meet was set up with everything as duals and the Indians managed eight wins over the two days:

• Pacific defeated Hillsboro, 52-21;

• Pacific defeated Fatima, 57-18;

• Pacific defeated North County, 63-18;

• Pacific defeated St. Mary’s, 47-24;

• Pacific defeated Union, 40-36;

• Pacific defeated Webster Groves, 59-24;

• Pacific defeated Ft. Zumwalt South, 38-36; and

• Pacific defeated Windsor, 58-3.

The Indians’ lone loss was against De Soto, 51-26.

Claiming individual titles for Pacific were Josh Franek, Dalton Voyles and Austin Repp.

Franek (120 pounds) posted a 9-0 tournament record, improving to 18-3 on the season.

“Josh continued his very good start to the season. His three losses this season have been to top-notch, high-quality kids,” Schimsa said. “We’re still trying to get Josh down to 113. I think he’ll get there by the middle of January.”

Voyles (170) had a 9-0 tournament record, improving to 21-2 on the season. He previously competed this season at 182 pounds, but is moving down.

“We’re in the process of moving Dalton down to 160, so we had him at 170 for this tournament and moved Austin up to 182,” Schimsa said. “Dalton is having a good year. He hasn’t been tested much, other than his two matches against Summers (Washington’s Kyle Summers). Once he gets to 160, he’s going to be a force to be reckoned with on the state level.”

Repp (182) posted a 9-0 tournament record, improving to 24-0 on the season. He set Pacific’s career record for wins and team points, surpassing Jesse Knott in both categories.

Repp’s career record currently stands at 169-15.

“Austin keeps rolling,” Schimsa said. “He had one match go the distance, an 8-3 win over Kuenzel (Union’s Dalton Kuenzel) while wrestling up a class.”

Pacific’s Lane Smith (145) placed second with an 8-1 record, improving to 15-9 on the season.

“Lane has lost to some tough kids this season. His one loss at the tournament was to a returning state placer from De Soto,” Schimsa said. “Lane had a good tournament. He’s been solid for us.”

Pacific’s third-place finishers were Joe Rind, Danny Nickelson and James Spencer.

Rind (132) finished in a three-way tie for first place with an 8-1 record, but settled for third place on criteria. He improved to 20-5 on the season.

“Joe had a good weekend. He probably should have won the one match that he lost,” Schimsa said. “He’s been a solid wrestler for us.”

Nickelson (152) finished in a three-way tie for second place with an 8-1 record, and settled for third place on criteria. He improved to 13-9 on the season.

“Danny’s one loss was by a 6-4 score against a good De Soto kid who he could have beaten,” Schimsa said. “Danny is coming around. He’s been in our program for four years. He’s a very knowledgeable wrestler.”

Spencer (160) posted a 7-2 record, improving to 8-7 on the season.

“James had a solid weekend. He’s new to our program after transferring in from Northwest, where he wrestled on the JV team,” Schimsa said. “He hasn’t wrestled for very long. He’s still green. I was glad to see him have some success.”

Pacific’s other wrestlers did not place.

Jarrett Harrison (195) posted a 6-3 record, improving to 12-10 overall.

“Jarrett keeps getting better. He lost to two good kids and one who he probably should have beaten,” Schimsa said. “He’s improving and continues to make progress.”

Also competing for the Indians were:

• Jai Lewis (106) with a 5-4 record;

• Zain Mathena (126) with a 4-5 record;

• Devin Somers (138) with a 4-3 record before an injury default prior to the final two duals; and

• Jamie Myers (220) with a 2-7 record.

“Zain is a small 126-pounder. He’s really a 120-pounder,” Schimsa said. “Once Franek goes to 113, Zain will drop to 120.”

Pacific was open at 113 and 285.
