One more win.

That’s what stood between two area wrestlers – New London’s Wyatt Magolski and Hortonville’s Henry Niebauer – and their first state championship.

Both wrestlers made it to the finals of their respective weight class Feb. 24 at the WIAA State Individual Wrestling Championships at the Kohl Center in Madison. Magolski dropped a 5-3 decision to Dodgeville’s Charlie Meudt in the Division 2 120-pound final, while Niebauer ended up on the short end of a 10-5 score to Arrowhead’s Wyatt Duchateau in the Division 1 150-pound championship match.

After having a bye in the preliminary round, Magolski made it to the championship match after a 14-3 major decision over Mauston/Necedah’s Drake Gosda and a 5-1 win over Luxemburg-Casco’s Carson Neubert in the semifinal round.

Niebauer won his first three matches to get to the final. He opened the tournament with a 13-1 major decision over Kaukauna’s Kolin DeGroot and followed that up with a 19-4 technical fall over Mukwonago’s Adam Whittier and a 5-3 win over Kenosha Indian Trail’s Sullivan Ramos in the semifinal round.

Hortonvile’s Cash Botting goes head to head with Arrowhead’s Cole Duchateau Feb. 22 in a Division 1 126-pound match at the state tournament. Botting, who wrestled at state last year as a freshman for Little Wolf High School, opened the tournament with a 10-4 win over Duchateau and went on to place sixth in his weight class.

Four other Hortonville wrestlers also competed in the boys’ side of the tournament.

Nolan Skebba placed third at 132; Cash Botting placed sixth at 126; and Ayden Needham and Austin McHugh competed at 190 and 215, respectively, but did not place.

Skebba beat New Richmond’s Luke Kamish 5-1 in a third-place match, while Botting dropped a 7-4 decision to Holmen’s Turner Campbell in a fifth-place match.
