February 20, 2020

Osvaldo Ocampo turns Beau Nieman of OABCIG on the way to winning by fall in thje semifinals.

Two Sheldon/South O'Brien grapplers are heading to Des Moines following competition at the Class 2A District Wrestling Tournament held February 15 at Sheldon. Coy De Boer was the District champion at 106 pounds while Osvaldo Ocampo placed second at 113 pounds. The duo will be among the wrestlers competing at the State Wrestling Tournament which runs February 20-22 at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.

The Class 2A matches at State begin at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday. De Boer, who has compiled a record of 30-4 in his freshman campaign, will face senior Arnie Galvan (27-11) of Mount Vernon. Junior Ocampo (31-6) will take on Roland Story senior Joe Hovick, who enters the match with a record of 42-6.

At home for the District Tourney, Sectional champ De Boer met Cherokee junior Simon Mummert who was a Sectional runner-up. De Boer was in control for most of the match and earned a 13-4 major decision. The first place match was a battle of freshmen as De Boer faced Bishop Heelan's Jahluv Buckhanan, a fellow Sectional champ. De Boer led all the way but a late takedown by the Crusader made it interesting in the 6-4 decision in favor of the Orabs.

Ocampo, who was second at the Sectionals to Spirit Lake Park sophomore Jonathon Burnette, had to open against Sectional champ Beau Nieman of OABCIG. The Orab gave up an early takedown but rallied to win by fall in 2:47. That set up a rematch with Burnette for first place and the Indians' grappler again came out on top, winning by pin. When Nieman won the third place match over Sergeant Bluff-Luton's Aidan Lambertsen, second was secured by Ocampo as was his ticket to Des Moines.
