Iowa won seven titles at the Luther Open in the Elite Division and another title in the Silver Division in Decorah, Iowa today.

Winning Elite titles for Iowa was Drake Ayala (125), Jace Rhodes (133), Jared Franek (157) Michael Caliendo (165), Gabe Arnold (174), Brennan Swafford (184), and Zach Glazier (197).

Isaiah Fenton won the 157 lbs. title in the Silver Division.

Ayala defeated first year Hawk transfer Joey Cruz in the 125 lbs. finals by a 19-3 tech fall. Gabe Arnold was dominant in winning the 174 lbs. title as a true freshman with three tech falls and a major decision.

All American transfers Franek and Caliendo sure look the part of their high national rankings.

Ayala, Franek, Caliendo, Swafford, and Glazier won all of their matches by bonus.

Real Woods did not compete today and Brody Teske won two matches and forfeited the remaining two matches at 133.

Overall a good day for the Hawks with a lot of bonus point wins with pins, tech falls, and major decisions.

Iowa will compete next in their season opener in legendary Carver-Hawkeye Arena with a dual meet against Oregon State on Sunday, November 19 at Noon CST.
