Holm will be on the podium

By Becky Walz,

Three full days of wrestling at Wells Fargo Arena are in the books and one Warrior remains to see action on the final day.
As a team, the South Winn boys’ wrestling team has earned 29 points and is currently 20th in the team standings.
The semifinal final match between Warrior senior Collin Holm and Denver’s Boden White might as well been the championship bout as they two battled for the fourth time this season at 144 pounds. Late in the first period, Holm couldn’t escape White’s grasp on a take-down. In the second period White got the escape. Holm managed an escape from the defensive position in the third period but came up short 3-1.
Holm is still on track to possibly take third that begins with Kolt Knaack of North Tama Saturday morning in the consolation semifinals.
At 165 pounds, Kyle Kuboushek fell short of the medal rounds Friday night in the fourth-round consolation match against Jackson Kounkel of Hinton. Kounkel was the first to score with a take-down in the first. Kuboushek managed to tie the match at 2-2 in the second with an escape in the first and another in the second. On the offensive in the third period, Kuboushek needed to keep hold of Kounkel, but gave up the escape and win 3-2. Kuboushek finishes the season with a second trip to state and a 44-10 record.
Parker Timp wrapped up his senior season with a 39-9 record at 215 pounds in the fourth-round consolation match against Grant Henderson of Sumner-Fredericksburg Friday night. Timp started the match strong with a 5-2 first period lead with a take-down and nearfall. Leading 5-2 into the third period, Henderson made his move after and escape and caught the Warrior off-guard on a takedown, eventually pinning Timp in 4:37.
