The Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, IA was packed for the Finals of the IHSAA Wrestling Tournament. Blake muscled his way onto the podium, placing 8th in State in his 160 lb. weight class. Now we can all breathe easily again...he met the personal goal he set for himself as a sophomore and first-year Varsity team member.
Check out our FB share to see him in brief local television coverage.
Loved his quick interview with Michael Admire after a match..
.when he descried it as a "real grinder."
Landon is a Cub Scout now and he and his dad designed and built a car to place in the races last
weekend. We came to see it happen.
First, the line-up (there were three times as many cars than these shown).
Landon's car is the gold, 3-slotted, sleek one 3rd from the end on the right.
That's when the People's Choice votes went into the box.
Every Thanksgiving morning, the Underwood boys run the Turkey Trot
through downtown Des Moines.
When they finish, they are served breakfast.
It's a treat to run in this lovely, sunny 40-degree weather!
Now they'll drive to Ollie for a Grandma Jonita Thanksgiving dinner.
