Ecstatic.

That was Pekin coach John Jacobs' one-word description of the Dragons' performance at the Quincy Invitational tournament.
Pekin finished third among 18 teams in the two-day competition despite not having a wrestler in three of 14 weight divisions.

"All of our guys won at least one match. That's what you need when you're missing wrestlers," Jacobs said.

Pekin's Ryan Haynes won all five of his matches Friday and Saturday and won the 113-pound championship. Tyler Siddles went 4-1 and won the 195 title.
Drake Hawkins (120) finished second. Brody Haynes (145) and Jared Dowell (170) were third. Evan Garland (126) and Andrew Krahn (220) were fourth.

Chase Roepenack (132), Logan Bailliez (140), Weston Gardner (160) and Dillon Sieh (182) also competed for the Dragons, who were missing Kosmo Green (152) and Noah Lamb (285), out with knee injuries.

Jacobs said Haynes wasn't feeling well during his first two wins Saturday, but was better when it came time for his championship match. The sophomore won the tournament title at 106 last year.

It was the first career tournament championship for Siddles, a senior who missed most of last season because of a knee injury.

Siddles was pinned by East Peoria's Lucas Raynor in 1:41 in his second match at Quincy. The two met Saturday in the championship match and Siddles pinned Raynor in 3:23.

Raynor is no slouch. He placed third at 220 last year at the Mid-Illini Conference tournament.

Krahn's fourth-place finish was his highest in a tournament. The senior had been sidelined because of a skin infection.

Cahokia won the Quincy title with 487 points. Belleville Althoff was second with 442.5 and Pekin was third with 361. Each won a team trophy, as did fourth-place Quincy (341.5).

Rock Falls (338), East Peoria (322.5), Jacksonville (300.5) and Troy Triad (289) rounded out the top eight.

"It was a good trip for us," Jacobs said.
