School history was made Saturday by a Panorama senior as the Panthers competed in the 19-team Bluejay Invitational at Perry.
Senior 160-pounder Wyatt Appleseth, ranked second at 160 pounds in 2A, became the first Panther to reach the 150-win career plateau while finishing 4-0 to win his weight bracket.
Class 2A top-ranked West Delaware won the meet with 295 points, with 1A No. 3 Logan-Magnolia second at 200, 2A No. 5 Sergeant Bluff-Luton third at 168, Dowling Catholic fourth at 163 and 2A No. 4 Webster City fifth at 142.5.
Spencer (118.5), Carroll (110), Spirit Lake Park (107), Van Meter/Earlham (102), and Woodward-Granger (101) finished 6-10, with Carlisle (76), South Hamilton (65), Panorama (63), West Marshall (60), Perry (46), Eagle Grove (25.5), Saydel (22), Collins-Maxwell (21), and Des Moines North/Hoover (11).
Appleseth (26-0) was third at the state tourney last year at 152 pounds. He qualified for state as a sophomore and was 8th at 132 as a freshman.
He scored a technical fall (17-1, 2:38) over Nathan Beyerink of Carroll (8-16) to start his title run Saturday. He pinned Nolan Pagel (6-14) of Carlisle in 1 minute, 31 seconds, then scored an 8-0 major decision over 1A No. 5 Gavin Maguire (32-1) of Logan-Magnolia. He claimed the crown with a 5-1 win over Isaac Bryon (17-4) of SB-L.
Cooper Andersen (21-1) was third for the Panthers at 220. He was 4-1 with four pins, his lone setback in the semifinals to sixth-rated Christian Nunley (18-2) of West Delaware.
Also placing was 138-pounder Cayden Van Meer (11-14), who was 4-2 to finish eighth. He won with a tech fall, decision and pin.
Ryan Fees (14-12) was 2-1 with two pins at 152, and Jared Henderson (14-13) was 1-3 with a pin at 285. Colby Waltz (3-12, 182 pounds), Isaac Monry-Nunez (1-9, 195 pounds), and Keyton Van Gundy (2-5, 220) pounds were all winless in each of their two matches.
