Hartmann, improving to 17-7 for the year overall, opened the day with a hard-fought 2-0 decision over The Citadel’s Marshall Haas. He came right back with a commanding performance in the consolation quarterfinals, beating Joshua Mohr of Air Force, 6-1. Fighting for a spot in the consolation championship bout, the Port Orchard, Wash., native battled Ohio’s Phillip Wellington tough, but came up just short in a 4-2 decision.
