GRIMES — The Webster City wrestling team placed second at the Andy Davidson DCG Mustang Invitational here on Saturday.

Two nights after scoring a pair of convincing dual wins in North Central Conference action, the Lynx quickly got back on the mats and put together a complete effort.

Creston/Orient-Macksburg was the team champion with 215 points followed by Webster City, who had 191.5. Dallas Center-Grimes was third, Ankeny Centennial fourth and West Marshall fifth in the 14-team field.

Freshman Linden Phetxoumphone finally got to compete in the quarterfinals after receiving three byes and forfeits in his first three matches. He scored a technical fall, followed that up with a 43-second pin and topped Ankeny Centennial’s Cale Vandermark in the finals, 1-0.

Carson Doolittle recorded 29.5 team points in winning the 120-pound bracket with three falls and two technical falls. In the championship match, he put Jacob Alexander from Adel-ADM on his back in the second period.

CJ Hisler secured the third invite title for the Lynx at 195 pounds with three consecutive pins. Hisler topped his first two opponents in 34 and 47 seconds before pinning Interstate 35’s Eli Green in 1:24.

Jaxon Cherry picked up a silver at 220 after falling to Evan Foreman of Interstate 35 in the championship match. He had two pins to reach the finals.

Jordan Vankham, Austin Mason and Dylan Burnette-Bingham all battled to fourth place medals.

Brayden Henely and Brady Jessen were each fifth, Dawson Bertran was sixth, Luke Estlund and Landon Griffin were seventh, and Tristen Maxwell eighth.

Webster City will compete Saturday in Grinnell at the Tiger Duals.
