Kaden Abbas

Kaden Abbas lost this battle and was taken down by Northwood-Kensett's Traycen Rollene. The Cougar freshman turned around to win the war with a second period pin. Abbas went on to finish second, earning his first trip to this week's State Championships.

Kaden Abbas has a long way to go to be on Trey Lashbrook’s level of accomplishment. But the Cougar freshman can forever compare himself to the three-time State medalist on one thing right now – being a freshman State qualifier.

AGWSR’s other four District qualifiers fell short. That includes seniors Lashbrook (126) who finished third and Zach Johnson (138) who ended in fourth, junior Jayden Bowles (145) and sophomore Ben Puente (160) who both finished fourth.

Zach Johnson

Cougar senior Zach Johnson fell short of his only trip to State Saturday in Clarksville. He finished fourth in the District.

Trey Lashbrook

Trey Lashbrook led his District semifinal match against Saint Ansgar's Ethan Maldonado until the last second. Lashbrook turned around to win a third place match in Clarksville on Saturday, ending his career with three State medals but not a fourth trip to Des Moines.
