Don Bosco and Denver positioned themselves for a run at the Class 1A state wrestling title with strong performances Saturday at district qualifying meets.

The Dons ran away with the district at Jesup, piling up 194 points and advancing 10 wrestlers to next week’s state championships in Des Moines.

Don Bosco crowned seven district champions — Daniel Kimball, Michael McClelland, Easton Larson, Max Wettengel, Carson Tenold, Cael Rahnavardi and Thomas Even. Cael Frost, Cade Tenold and Noah Pittman moved on as district runners-up.

“We got 10 qualifiers, even of them champs so overall it was a good day,” said Don Bosco coach Tom Hogan. “We came in with big thoughts of as many as 12, but that is the way district tournaments go.”

Larson defeated ninth-ranked Nolan Noonan of Cascade and No. 7 Heath Moyer of North Linn to win the 132-pound title. Rahnavardi won at 170 pounds even though he began the season at 152 and still weighs only 165.

Denver was equally impressive while winning the team title on its home mat with 176 points. Ten Cyclones will also be going to Wells Fargo Arena next week.

The Cyclones had five champions and five runners-up.

Joe Ebaugh, Brooks Meyer, Gabriel Lewis, Riley Wright and Trever Dorn won titles for Denver with Jacob Moore, Isaac Schimmels, Logan Meyer, Cael Krueger and Brock Farley taking second.

Other champs at Denver included AGWSR’s Trey Lashbrook, North Butler/Clarksville’s Bryce Trees, Wapsie Valley’s Kaleb Krall and Rylan Duffy and Hudson’s Ethan Fulcher and Aiden Zook.

New Hampton/Turkey Valley edged Union of La Porte City and Crestwood in the Class 2A district at Independence where only seven points separated the top three teams, but the Knights and Cadets will be well-represented at state. Union advanced seven wrestlers, Crestwood six and NH/TV four.

New Hampton/Turkey Valley got titles from Mason Cleveland Max Babcock, Evan Rosonke and Carter Reicks. Crestwood champs were Carter Fousek, Kaden Anderlik, Colter Bye and Treyton Burnikel. Union’s district winners were Jack Thomsen and Adam Ahrendsen.

Independence advanced four wrestlers, including district champions Isaiah Weber, Cole Davis and Drew Evans. Decorah got a title from Jackson Rolfs at 132 pounds.

Osage finished third in the 2A district at Clear Lake with five state qualifiers. Four won titles — Joe Sullivan, Averee Abben, Zach Williams and Spencer Mooberry.
