Marlin joins future Hawk teammate in winning 4th state title
DES MOINES — The weight of the world was off of his shoulders, and Jake Marlin wanted everyone to share in the celebration.
The Creston/Orient-Macksburg senior set a state pin record while earning the crown jewel of his four state wrestling championships, with a fall in 2:55 against fifth-ranked Adam Staudt of Charles City Saturday night in the Class 2A 138-pound finals.
After hearing the official slap the mat to confirm the 204th victory of his high school career — against only six losses (two in Iowa) — Marlin couldn't contain his excitement. He gestured with both hands, multiple times, for everyone to stand up.
