Vaith is state wrestling champion


Hastings senior Luke Vaith became the eighth wrestler in school history to win a state wrestling title. And it took an upset win over the nation's third-ranked wrestler to do it.

Vaith, whose father, Paul, is the Hastings head coach, has been wrestling since preschool. His aim all those years was a state title, and on Saturday afternoon in St. Paul, he hit the mark.
