OMAHA, Neb. -- University of Iowa freshmen Michael Kelly (157) and Mike Evans (174) each won amateur titles at the 2010 Ryan Kaufman/Glen Brand Open Saturday in Omaha, NE. Kelly and Evans, who both competed unattached, were two of Iowa's 18 wrestlers at the tournament, with nine going in the elite division and nine in the amateur bracket.

The 157 and 174-pound amateur finals were all-Iowa match-ups as Kelly faced teammate Nick Moore and Evans wrestled fellow Hawkeye Jeremy Fahler. Kelly posted six wins en route to his title, including an 8-7 victory in the third tiebreak period in the semifinals over Indiana's RaVaughn Perkins. Kelly defeated Moore in the finals, 6-4. Evans pinned three opponents and posted major decisions over the other two, including his 10-0 win over Fahler in the finals. Freshman Jake Ballweg was the 149-pound amateur division runner-up, while freshmen Matt Gurule (125) and Ethan Owens (141) placed sixth.

Sophomore Nate Moore (133) and senior Aaron Janssen (165) led the Hawkeyes in the elite division, both placing third. Moore was pinned by Minnesota's Bart Reiter near the end of his first match, but won six straight consolation bouts - including a 12-5 decision over Reiter - to earn third place. Janssen lost a close 8-7 decision to Oklahoma's Dallas Bailey in the semifinals, but posted two wins in the wrestlebacks to place third. Junior Vinnie Wagner also placed fourth at 184.

Up next for the Hawkeyes (2-0) is a double-dual with Chattanooga (2-1) and Cornell College (2-0) Friday in Mount Vernon, IA. Iowa will wrestle Chattanooga at 6:30 p.m. and Cornell at 8 p.m. at Cornell's Small Multi-Sport Center. Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for youth ages 5-18.
