12 unbeatens remain in Junior Greco
 
Let's hope the 17 Illinois wrestlers who remain have as good a day tomorrow as they did today.

Twelve of those 17 remain unbeaten as a of few minutes ago, when the last session of the day concluded here at the FargoDome.

Joel Shump (119), Zane Richards (125), John Bozarth (140) and Dillon Cowan (145) all have gone a perfect 5-for-5. Brandon Rice (135) also has five straight wins after being pinned by Chase Ferman of Oklahoma in the opening round. Ferman is 6-0.

Also unbeaten for Illinois: Nkosi Moody (98), Antonio Taylor (112), Luke Smith (145), Trace Engelkes and defending champion Dylan Reel (160), Jahwon Akui (171), Sam Brooks (189) and Michael Sojka (215).

Class A champion Engelkes scored perhaps the most impressive win of the evening session, a 4-0, 1-3, 1-0 decision over two-time Florida champion Geordan Speiller of Oviedo, who is nationally ranked.

One of the more interesting late matches, which attracted quite a crowd in the stands above Mat 2, saw two-time Marmion state champion Ben Whitford, now competing for Michigan, and two-time West Aurora placewinner Nicholas Drendel at 135. Whitford won 5-2, 7-0, a match that ended Drendel's tournament with a 4-2 record.

One wrestler who was eliminated with a 1-2 record, Jordan Lind (980 of Pontiac, will be an All-American, as he'll be going for seventh place. Lind was a Cadet National Greco-Roman champion last year.

The complete list of who's still in:

98 - Nkosi Moody, 2-0; Jordan Lind, 1-2 (going for seventh place)
112 - Jared Parvinmehr, 2-1; Antonio Taylor, 4-0
119 - Joel Shump, 5-0
125 - Zane Richards, 5-0
135 - Brandon Rice, 5-1
140 - John Bozarth, 5-0
145 - Dillon Cowan, 5-0; Luke Smith, 4-0
160 - Trace Engelkes, 4-0; Dylan Reel, 4-0
171 - Jahwon Akui, 3-0
189 - Sam Brooks, 4-0
215 - Josh Marchok, 2-1; Michael Sojka, 4-0
285 - Jeremy Brazil, 3-1; Reid Sealby, 3-1

Good luck to all in the morning!
