MARION — Humboldt High’s Andrew Watts has extended his wrestling season by picking up a pair of wins Saturday at the Kansas Class 3-2-1A Substate Tournament. 

Watts secured fourth place at substate, pinning Justin Miller of Oskaloosa in the championship quarterfinals before falling in a semifinal round to unbeaten Dane Whalen of Osage City.

That sent Watts to the consolation round, where he secured the state berth by pinning Garrison Craig of Marysville in 1:27.
