Holmen wrestlers seek big finish at State

Holmen, WI (WXOW) -

Wisconsin's top high school wrestlers will descend on Madison for a three-day battle royal, also known as the WIAA State Wrestling Tournament.

The state capitol will see a significant population increase from Holmen over the weekend.

The Vikings qualified 10 athletes to State, the second most in division one behind Burlington.

Holmen has been on the state radar all season.

They've been ranked number one in division one and they've been battled-tested, having won the prestigious Bi-State Classic and the team sectional finals as well.

"They know who've they've faced and the caliber they've faced all year long.  For them, it's the state tournament, which is big and exciting.  But at the same time, we've wrestled this tournament a few times this year.  Hopefully, that pays off for us in the long run," said head coach Jason Lulloff.
I think it's ours to lose at this point.  Our coaches have prepped us for it so we just have to go and get it done.  It's just a matter of time," said Holmen senior Zach Gordon.

The WIAA State Wrestling meet start Thursday evening at the Kohl Center with division one quarterfinals and division 2 and 3 pre-lims.

Championships in all divisions are Saturday evening.
