LEROY\u00a0\u2014 Pine River has a lineup of several talented wrestlers, and it includes senior Raden Holmes. He\u2019s coming off a strong junior season. \u201cIt started off when I won the Mio tournament,\u201d he said. \u201cI started getting first at tournaments. Then it was conference and district champion, which was exciting for me. Qualifying for state was one of the best highlights of my life.\u201d Holmes didn\u2019t place at state, but wants to return this season and place. \u201cIt will take hard work and make sure I go above and beyond what I\u2019ve been doing,\u201d he said. Holmes also plays baseball and football, but said he got in a lot of wrestling time during the offseason, including out of state tournaments. As of late December, Holmes was 9-2. Wrist fighting and overall style have been strengths, he indicated. \u201cI have to make sure I keep my daily runs going,\u201d he said, \u201cand make sure I work on my technique and not just working on getting the move done but perfecting the move.\u201d Pine River wrestles at Benzie Central on Wednesday.
