Oakes wrapped up the second seed in this weekend’s Region I Dual Tournament with a 41-30 victory over Linton-HMB in Linton on Jan. 24. The four-time defending Class B Individual Champion Tornadoes finished their Region 1 dual slate with a 6-1 mark.

Linton-HMB, which came in with a chance to gain as high as the number two seed, finished the season with a 4-3 record in Region I, and the Lions will be the number four seed in the Region I Dual Tournament, which will be held Saturday (Feb. 2) in Napoleon. The Lions finished the regular season with an 11-3 mark in duals overall.

The dual started in the 182-pound division, and Oakes took a 4-0 lead with Jed Bopp’s 11-3 major decision over Garret Roemmich. Ethen Roemmich’s pin over Tristan Schmitz in the 195-pound class gave Linton-HMB a 6-4 lead, but that would be the final lead of the night for the Lions. A pin by Cole Kelly (220) and a forfeit victory by Michael Kelly (285) gave Oakes a 16-6 lead, and after Wyatt Nagel was issued a forfeit for Linton-HMB at 106, Erik Loepp won by technical fall (15-0) of Josh Schlosser at 113 to extend the lead to 21-12.

Pins by Brock Nagel (145) and Jared Schumacher (152) kept Linton-HMB alive, and Clay Jacob won an 8-2 decision over Keaton Peterson at 160 to cut the lead to 36-30 with one bout left.
