Newsline 9 Athlete of the Week: Baine surprises with state title

Posted:

(WAOW) - Wausau West Warrior Colin Baine is the Wisconsin state wrestling champ at 120 pounds.  He won the title, in dramatic fashion on Saturday night.

It looked as if he were going to lose before he stayed on his feet and scored a takedown. 

What's more impressive is he beat the defending state champ, Chippewa Falls' Izzy Balsiger was also undefeated heading into the final with a record of 45-0. 

As the takedown was happening, Baine was in a state of disbelief. Wausau west will head down to Madison for the team state tournament this weekend.  There's no better confidence boost than going in there as the best in Wisconsin.
