Davisson picks up 100th win
CLINTON — Seth Davisson entered Saturday’s Bob Lueders Invitational in Clinton needing three more victories to eclipse 100 for his career.
The Fairfield senior accomplished the feat and then some, going 4-1 in the 170-pound bracket Saturday to notch the milestone. In its 39th year, the perennially tough tourney included 22 other squads hailing from Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin.
“That’s a huge accomplishment. There are not many people who can say they have won 100 matches, so it’s pretty special,” Fairfield head coach Steve Miller said.
Davisson’s four wins helped him place fifth overall, and he was joined by teammates and third-place finishers Ammon Shaner and Jake Mineart, fifth-place winner Aaron Gevock as well as Bryce Lunsford.
“They all got a lot of valuable wins and got to see a lot of quality opponents,” Miller said. “There are not a lot of easy matches up there. ... Some people refer to it as a ‘mini state tournament.’”
Both Shaner and Mineart toppled ranked opponents on their way to a pair of 3-1 days and impressive third-place finishes. Gevock also claimed a win over a ranked opponent and finished 4-1 on the day, while Lunsford went 1-2.
Fairfield finished 12th overall in the team race with 69 points. Linn-Mar won the invite with 209.5 points.
The Trojans have two more regular season competitions, starting with their annual Southern Iowa Classic scheduled next Saturday in Fairfield.
