MT. PLEASANT - The Iowa Wesleyan wrestling teams hosted their first home doubleheader of the season on Friday night as the Tigers took on Indian Hills Community College in both women and men's action. IHCC upended the Tigers in both, beating the women 34-7 and the men 33-13.
The women's team had a hot start, when Alaina Sunlin dominated the 109-pound matchup over Indian Hills' Mya Turnmire. Sunlin pinned Turnmire in 40 seconds to help the Tigers jump ono top 5-0.
The Tiger women, however, would lose the next eight matches. Indian Hills won four matches by forfeit, two by technical fall and two by decision.
The Tiger men were up next, and like the women they got an early boost from the lightweights. After dropping the 125-pound match by forfeit, the Tigers won the next two.
Dustin Britt had Iowa Wesleyan's only fall, pinning Indian Hills' Deven Durham in 2:26. Gaige Owens followed that up with a 16-6 decision in the 141-pound match, defeating Indian Hills' Jackson Wenberg.
The Tigers led 10-6 after the third weight of the night, but didn't score again until the final bout. Indian Hills won six-straight matches from 149 pounds to 197 pounds to take a commanding 33-10 lead.
The night did end on a positive for Iowa Wesleyan. At 285 pounds, Brendon Lunsford outlasted Indian Hills' Caleb Collins in overtime, taking him down in the sudden victory period to win 3-1.
