CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - The Northern Iowa Wrestling crowned three champions and had a medalist in every weight class at the UNI Open presented by Doughy Joey's.

Ryan Loder won his second UNI Open in the 184-pound weight class. Loder logged two pins before claiming his title, with the fastest being in 1:08 over Alex Daughtery of Minnesota.

"He's going to grind out wins and be stingy with points," said head coach Doug Schwab. "When you put a string of wins together, it elevates your whole level."

In the 157-pound weight class, David Bonin racked up several points by scoring major decisions against his first three opponents.

Cody Caldwell had one pin in 3:10, a technical fall and a major decision to win at 174 pounds.

"He's hard to beat when he is flowing and attacking and not tightening up. He just needs to stay relaxed," said Schwab.

Overall placewinners for UNI:

  • 125 - Dylan Peters 4th
  • 133 - Tyler Willers 6th
  • 141 - Joey Lazor 2nd, Gunnar Wolfensperger 4th, Tyler Patten 6th
  • 149 - Zach Witte 4th
  • 157 - David Bonin 1st, Taylor Berger 6th
  • 165 - Cooper Moore 4th, Jarrett Jensen 6th
  • 174 - Cody Caldwell 1st
  • 184 - Ryan Loder 1st
  • 197 - Jared Bartel 5th
  • 285 - Cody Krumwiede 2nd, Blayne Beale 4th

"We're trying to make little adjustments on matches we aren't coming out on top. We need to be ready at the start and win the first period," said Schwab. "When you have that many competing, you will have your ups and downs. This was a good field."

Dylan Peters, whose high school record is 195-1, lost his first two matches of the season tonight. He also had two pins for the day.

"He's a prime example," said Schwab. "He gains steam, but we need to make sure we start it early. He got valuable experience today."

Krumwiede had a pin and major decision before falling to the champion Pat Walker of Illinois.

"We want more from him, and so does he," said Schwab. "It's promising when a freshman is winning a lot of matches. We just try to emphasize you can make an impact now. You don't have to wait until you are a senior."

The coaching staff credited the volunteers' help for making the event a success.

"It takes a lot of volunteers putting in so many hours to make this run so smoothly. We can never thank coordinators like Larry Hamilton and Dan Summerhays enough for putting this together," said Schwab.

Twenty-four teams were entered: Central Missouri, Ellsworth Community College, Grandview College, Illinois, Indianapolis, Iowa Central Community College, Iowa State, University of Iowa, King College, Lindenwood, Michigan State, Minnesota State-Mankato, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue, South Dakota State, United States Military Academy Preparatory School, University of Dubuque, Upper Iowa University, Wartburg and Wisconsin.

The Panthers will be in action next week at home. UNI will host Ellsworth Community College at 7 p.m. Dec. 13. Fans who bring an unwrapped gift for the Toys for Tots charity will get free admission to the wrestling meet.
