Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Don Bosco, going after their sixth team title in seven years, put together a strong showing in Friday's quarterfinals.

The Don's Drew Mangrich opened the day with a solid 7-3 win over Maquoketa Valley's Jared Coyle. And Don Bosco got a dominating performance from Scott Weber, who picked up a first period pin on West Marshall's Drew Hemeseth at 138. In all, four Bosco wrestlers reached the semis.

Weber said, " The team's ready, and they've been training us to focus on ourselves, and the team thing will take care of itself."

Nashu-Plainfield was strong as well, starting the day at 106, where Blake Dietz picked up a pin. He was one of three Huskies to reach the semis.

Maquoketa Valley was another team with a strong showing. Four Wildcats reached the semis, including undefeated freshman 195 pounder Ryan Parmely, who handed West Hancock's Zac Schlueger his first defeat this year.

At 126, defending champ Tyler Shulista picked up a major decision over Noah Irons of Lake Mills, but the Alburnett senior was expecting more.

Shulista said, "Had him a couple times on his back, but I didn't finish it so I just have to get everything tight and go on to the next match."

To the 3A semis, where Iowa City West is right in the team race. the Trojans Philip Koethe reached the finals with a pin at 160. He's one of 3 West wrestlers to reach the finals--

The Linn-Mar Lions have been solid as well. The Lions moved 3 wrestlers into Saturday's final--that included 182 pounder Mark Atwater, who picked up a decision over Southeast Polk's Casey Marnin.

Senior Eric DeVos is Waverly-Shell Rock's only finalist, DeVos rolled to a tech fall over Prairie's Trey Blaha. DeVos now moves on to face 3-time defending state champ Cory Clark of Southeast Polk.

DeVos said, "He wakes up in the morning and puts his pants on, like they say, just like I do, puts one foot in each leg or whatever the saying is, but I know he's a great wrestler, but I'll try to put on a show for the crowd."
