DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The condition of an Iowa wrestler who collapsed at the state high school duals tournament has improved.

Spokesman Gregg Lagan (LAY’-guhn) for Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines said Thursday morning that Tayler Pettit’s condition has been upgraded to serious from critical. Lagan says he can’t provide other medical information on the teenager.

The Creston/Orient-Macksburg wrestler doubled over during the tournament Wednesday.
