3 Saints get 2nds at MVC tourney

Amid all the grim-faced and tight-lipped wrestlers at the Mississippi Valley Conference tournament Saturday stood A.J. Garcia, the 215-pounder from Linn-Mar.

He was all smiles.

Garcia upset top-ranked Conner Herman of Cedar Rapids Jefferson to win the 215-pound crown and was named the Outstanding Wrestler in the 14-team field at Xavier.

"I was ready to go for that match," he said. "It's a real big accomplishment for me."

Garcia dominated Herman, 9-3, in the biggest upset of the day, handing Herman his only loss of the season to a fellow 215-pounder.

"I'm building my way up toward state," said Garcia. "This is going to motivate me."

Garcia, ranked No. 8, raised his record to 38-4 and led seven Metro wrestlers to the top of the victory stand at Ron Thillen Gymnasium.

Saints boys trimmed by Iowa City West

IOWA CITY – Iowa City West’s sophomore duo of Dondre Alexander and Jeremy Morgan combined for 26 points Friday night as the Trojans outmuscled Cedar Rapids Xavier, 56-51, in a Mississippi Valley Conference game in Iowa City.

West took advantage of two consecutive turnovers by the Saints late in the fourth quarter that resulted in two field goals and a 52-48 lead with less than a minute remaining.

“There were about two or three possessions where we lost contact with their shooters and they made us pay for it,” said Xavier Coach Matt Jenkins.

Ryan Mains led the Saints with nine points and four rebounds. Mack Mattke added seven points off the bench, including a key 3-pointer that put Xavier within one point with two minutes remaining.
