The pre-meet seeding led everyone to believe that Jackson would prevail in the SEMO Conference Wrestling Tournament and history indicated that, as well.

The Indians grabbed five first-place finishes to easily take the team title with 692 points, outdistancing runner-up Farmington (564.5).

The title was the fourth consecutive for Jackson, which is a first in program history.

Jackson got championships from Riley Wiseman (113 pounds) and Cole Parker (182), while Garner Horman (152), Noah Uhrhan (160) and Cole Amelunke (195) each earned titles for the second straight year.

Dexter’s Travis Waldner took the top spot in the 170-pound class, which was his third consecutive title.
