“We got huge pins from Jared Redman, Damon Dann, Hunter Genco and Dillion Chase,” Lueders said.
The featured bout of the night was next when Kalkbrenner, ranked No. 1 in Illinois Class 1A at 152, and Dustin Caldwell, a 2013 state placewinner who is ranked third in Class 3A at 152, both moved up to 152. Kalkbrenner dominated with an 11-1 victory.
Le-Win and Clinton split the final two matches, with the River Kings’ Chase closing it with a pin at 182.
Fulton drops 2
KEWANEE, Ill. — Morrison and Kewanee defeated Fulton on Thursday in a Three Rivers Conference triangular.
Seven Morrison wrestlers recorded pins in a 58-21 victory, and the Boilermakers had eight in a 54-23 win.

Rebels fall twice
NORTHEAST — Tyler Schoon celebrated Senior Night with a notable victory, but the Northeast Rebels dropped River Valley Conference duals to Iowa City Regina 43-18 and Wilton 51-15. In the other dual, Wilton beat Regina 50-18.
Schoon, a 2012 state qualifier, pinned Daniel Sullivan of Regina in 18 seconds, then beat Logan Mays of Wilton 6-2 in their match at 132 pounds. Like his team, Mays is ranked fourth in Class 1A at his weight.
“Tyler finished his last home dual on a high note by starting with a quick attack and pin in the first match,” Northeast coach Ken Schoon said. “He then had a strong offensive showing against a fine wrestler in the second match. His takedown offense was the best I’ve seen this year, and he continues to improve in maintaining good position on the mat.”
The Rebels also got a pin from Blake Dierks against Regina and from Octavio Cruz against Wilton.
