Timp champion heavyweight for SW

By Becky Walz,

The mats were busy Saturday as the South Winn wrestling team hosted the South Winn Invite.
Featuring eight teams from northeast Iowa, West Delaware came out on top, taking first with 249.5 points. Osage was a close second with 225 points. South Winn claimed fifth place with 98 points, while Decorah ended the day sixth with 91 points.
“Even though we pushed back the tournament start time, we were still fortunate to host the SW Invite. The Tournament was loaded as usual with tough kids at every weight. We had the defending 2A state champions and runner-ups along with a bunch of other solid teams,” said South Winn coach Jake Elsbernd. “We only wrestled 11 guys on Saturday and finished just a few points out of the top four. 

Warrior wrap-up
South Winn had just one grappler make the finals as senior Ethan Timp reached the finals match for the second straight week, coming out on top as the champion at 285 pounds. After a first-round bye, Timp used a third-period escape from the defensive position to earn a 1-0 decision over Colton Schupbach of North Fayette Valley. In the finals he faced West Delaware’s Cameron Geuther and managed a 5-3 decision to the title.
“Ethan put together a couple really good matches, he is starting to really put himself in some good positions on the mat, is wrestling smart and not taking any unnecessary risks,” noted SW Coach Elsbernd.
Tony Greve came up just short of the finals, finishing third at 195 pounds.
“I am really excited about our younger kids, the results aren’t quite there yet, but the effort and fight definitely is. I like seeing how badly they want to win and how much it hurts them when they lose. Kids like Parker Timp, Aiden Feickert and Bo Wangsness are getting really close to doing some big things. They need to work on some positions that will help them finish matches, but they are all very coachable and I know we can get it corrected. Lukas Weiss was our only freshman in the lineup and got to see what the SW Invite is all about, this experience will make him better as we move forward,” concluded Coach Elsbernd. “Levi Lennon also got his first experience in the SW Invite and has been a great addition to the team this season. He works hard and continues to get better each week. I thought Kaden Bullerman wrestled as well as we have seen and is starting to put some things together.”

Vikings in the finals
Decorah had two wrestlers advance to the championship bout.
The first to make the finals was 113-pounder Kollin Henry. A first-round bye put the Viking sophomore in the semifinal versus Edgar Nunez of NH/TV, sticking Nunez in 3:46. It was the battle of all battles in the finals as Henry battle Denver’s Rhett Bonnette, falling 6-4 in sudden victory.
Also reaching the championship was Corbyn Palmer at 170 pounds. The junior reached the semifinals after a first-round bye. There he bested Ben Tenge of NH/TV by a 10-4 decision. West Delaware’s Kyle Cole threw Palmer early, putting the Decorah grappler on the mat in 35 seconds.
Just shy of the 145-pound finals, Holten Palmer finished third.
