WARRENSBURG, Mo. - Kyle Lowman took second place at 157 pounds Sunday to lead seven SIUE placewinners at the Central Missouri Roger Denker Open.

Steve Ross also placed sixth at 157 pounds but had to forfeit in the fifth-place match.

Brendan Murphy was a winner in his final match of the day, a third-place finish at 141 pounds. Murphy defeated Maryville's Tyrell Galloway 4-1.

SIUE collected two finishers in the top six at 184 pounds. Cole Brandt took fourth while Derek Nagel finished in sixth.
