Wrestling Cubs show well at Aitkin Open

Kimball wrestlers Alex thurber and Raa'heem Leach competed Tuesday, March 21, at the Aitkin Open. Thurber, a freshman at KAHS took first place in his weight class. He made quite an impression with his take-downs at this event. Fans also admired his 'throwback' singlet from earlier Kimball wrestling days. Leach, an eighth-grader at KAHS, took second place in his weight class, despite giving up 10-20 pounds to each of his opponents. Leach also brought home the trophy for 'Fastest Fall' (pinning his opponent in 32 seconds) for the seventh-and eighth-graders at the Open.
