PCM’s Kingery and Tool Win 1st Round Match-ups, Findlow Still Alive in Class 2A State Wrestling Meet

Three of PCM’s four State qualifiers are still alive after day one of the State Wrestling Tournament, including two that still have a shot at a state title.

126-pounder Dalton Kingery defeated drew Foster of Mediapolis in an 8-5 decision, and will face Colton McCrystal of Sergeant Bluff-Lutton today in the Class 2A Quarterfinals. Also advancing was Jake Tool, as the Mustangs’ 285-pounder pinned Tyler White of Perry in 2:24 to set up a quarterfinal match-up with Dean Broghammer of West Delaware.

At 182 pounds, Zach Findlow lost his opening-round match-up by fall, but came back to defeat Scott Brockman of Clarinda 10-7 in the first consolation round, to keep his State Tournament alive. His second round consolation opponent will be determined later today. Finally, Bryce Wignall saw a strong wrestling career at PCM come to an end on Thursday, as the 138-pounder for the Mustangs lost to John Swarte of Harlan 8-4, then was up-ended 7-4 in the consolation round by Matt Taylor of Dallas Center-Grimes.
