Individual wrestling sectionals hit the mat today, as grapplers from all over Wisconsin compete for a chance to head to state.
We'll start off near our neck of the woods, Auburndale hosting a Division 3 sectional. In the second round, Edgar on the offensive, Matt Nowak gets the pin on Florence's Cole Dollar.
Nowak wins the 160 pound match. And finishes third. At 170, Luke Nowak, also from Edgar, he finishes first. And both will head to state. They're part of five Wildcats making the trip.
Off to 220. Zachary Lemmer of Athens with the takedown on his Coleman opponent. But he would eventually go down on points. But finish in third. He's headed to state also.
We're at the heavyweights, Andrew Murdaugh of Stratford scores the second period pin. He'll take first and head to Madison as well.
Overall in Division 3, 18 kids in our area are headed to the Kohl Center.
