The sophomore, who was seeded second, started the tournament with a 55-second pin over Lake Lehman’s Zach Styart before being upset by Clearfield’s Matt Ryan, 9-7, in the quarterfinals.

Glasl worked his way through four rounds for third place, getting a technical fall, a decision, a bye, and then avenged his previous loss to Ryan in the third place match with a 4-2 win.

The Rovers also had a trio of wrestlers take fourth place in Dominic Inzana (106), Eric Johnson (170), and Garrett McClintick (182).

Like his teammates, McClintick also cruised to the semifinals with a fall in the first round and a 6-4 decision in the quarters.

Inzana, a junior seeded seventh, picked up a 3-2 win in the first round before falling by pin in the quarters.

Inzana then earned a 2-1 decision before losing by fall again to drop him into the seventh place match.

In his final match, Inzana beat Wilson’s Zavery Lesher, 2-1, to go 3-2 in the tournament.
