Three Hawk wrestlers earn milestone wins

Three Lynnville-Sully High School wrestlers – Cayden Johnson, Josh Dunsbergen, and Carson Dunsbergen – picked up their 100th career wins during the past week of wrestling. Another L-S senior wrestler, Sage Zylstra, is just one win away from hitting the milestone victory.

Lynnville-Sully senior Cayden Johnson earned his 100th career wrestling win.

Johnson, son of Ryan and Kelli Johnson of Sully, picked up his 100th career wrestling win, fittingly on senior night at Lynnville-Sully on Thursday, Jan. 18. The Hawks hosted Baxter, Colfax-Mingo, and English Valleys for the final home meet of the season. Johnson went 3-0 on senior night, earning his 100th career win with a pin in 4:24 against Colfax-Mingo’s Trystin Ross in the 152-pound match. The victory was especially memorable for Johnson who received extra motivation from a beloved fan in the stands, his grandpa, Kelly Miller. Miller has been fighting stage four prostate cancer since September and recently returned home after a five-week hospital stay.

Two days later at the Colfax-Mingo Duals on Saturday, Jan. 20, two more Hawk seniors, J. Dunsbergen and C. Dunsbergen, picked up their 100th high school career wrestling wins.

J. Dunsbergen, son of Dustin and Dana Dunsbergen of rural Lynnville, earned his 100th victory in the 138-weight bracket with a pin over Ankeny Centennial’s Griffen Wiseheart in the team’s first dual of the day. The senior went 2-1 on the day, losing a close match against North Mahaska’s Tyler Strasser for just his second season loss.

C. Dunsbergen, son of Tim and Nicole Dunsbergen of Sully, needed five victories to reach 100 wins. The senior went on to pin each of his five opponents on Saturday. His 100th career win came by a pin against Newton’s Bryce Rhone in the 145-pound match.
