Falcons win Seneca wrestling crown

Jefferson City JV places ninth

SENECA, Mo. — The Blair Oaks Falcons won the Seneca Wrestling Tournament by the slimmest of margins.

How slim? Try half a point.

The Falcons racked up 296 points to sneak past Bentonville, Ark., which ended up with 295.5 in the 13-team event. It was part of a logjam at the top, as third-place Nevada ended up with 282 and fourth-place Seneca had 280.5.

Leading the way for the Falcons was Logan Mudd, who went 6-0 while claiming the title at 145 pounds and was named the Most Outstanding Wrestler of the event.

Also winning a title was John Karsten at 285 pounds, as he posted a record of 5-0.

Frankie Falotico was the lone second-place finisher for the Falcons, as he went 5-1 at 126 pounds.

Blair Oaks had three third-place finishers — Alex Gaydos went 5-2 at 138, Brad Thomas was 4-3 at 152 and Levi Dial was 5-1 at 220.

The Falcons will return to action when they travel to St. Louis to take on Whitfield in a dual.


The Jefferson City JV team also competed in the Seneca Tournament and placed ninth with a total of 192.5 points.
