Mayberry, Beem win titles at H-10 meet

Glenwood’s Vinny Mayberry (right) was one of two Rams to win championships at Saturday’s Hawkeye 10 Conference Wrestling Meet. Mayberry became Glenwood’s seventh three-time conference champion with his win at 120 pounds.

Glenwood’s Vinny Mayberry and Matt Beam took home individual titles and the Rams placed third as a team at the Hawkeye 10 Conference Wrestling Tournament Saturday in Clarinda.

Creston was the team champion for the third time in four years with 243 points. The Panthers finished with three individual champions and four runners-up.

Glenwood finished third in the team race with 166 points. Coach Tucker Weber had high hopes for his team heading into the conference meet.

“Our goal was to go in and win and we didn’t quite have our full lineup and some unfortunate injuries,” he said. “The kids that were out there did a good job. A couple of matches could have gone differently but that’s part of the sport.”

The day that Vinny Mayberry (120) and Matt Beem (132) had could not have gone better. The juniors were both went home with conference titles.

Mayberry pinned Council Bluffs Lewis Central’s Jaxon Brewer in the semifinals before avenging a loss last Tuesday to Creston’s Christian Ahrens with a 6-2 win in Saturday’s conference finals.

“He’s three for three,” Weber said of Mayberry’s third conference title. “He was really looking forward to wrestling that kid (Ahrens) again because he was pretty upset he pinned him the first time around. The score in this one was closer than the match. He dominated every position and he looked really good.”

Mayberry is Glenwood’s seventh three-time conference champion.

Beem notched a major decision victory over Creston’s Trey Chesnut to earn a spot in the 132-pound finals. Beem them needed just 1:46 to pin Class 1A, No. 3 ranked Kuemper Catholic’s Riley Parkis for the championship.

“He had a really good day,” he said. “He had two solid matches with the major in the semifinals and the pin in the finals. He’s wrestling at a high level right now.”

The Rams’ C.J. Carter, who entered ranked No. 4 in the state at 195, won his first two matches but was forced to take an medical forfeit in the quarterfinals to Clarinda’s Jaxon Miers due to an undisclosed injury. Weber said the senior suffered the injury in practice and attempted to fight through it at the conference meet but he was unable to go on.

“He’s a senior with a chance to win another Hawkeye 10 title so that was hard for him,” Weber said. “He’s bummed but he’s a good leader and he was there supporting his teammates. I think he’d rather have a state title than a conference title so we’ll give him some time off and hopefully he’s better in a week or two.”

Mason Koehler dropped a 4-0 decision to conference champion Jaxson Hildebrand of Denison. Of Koehler’s six losses this season, three have come to Hildebrand.

“He’s having a real solid year,” Weber said. “For being a big kid coming in as a freshman, he’s really shown a lot.”

Trent Patton lost by fall in the 285 semifinals to Atlantic’s Evan Sorensen and then bounced back to slip by Clarinda’s Bryson Harris in a 1-0 decision to place third.
