Excessive College Sports activities Xtra: High wrestlers shine at particular person state | WFRV Native 5
(WFRV) – Saturday’s state wrestling championships were crowning moments for many wrestlers who have already worn the crown, and have added their names even higher up the historical rankings.
At 132, Kaukaunas hunter Eisch ended his high school career with a second title in a row, which faced the toughest opponent. Stoughton junior Nicolar Rivera, previously unbeaten in his high school career with two state titles, led Eisch 3-0 in the third half before the Kaukauna senior made a comeback to force overtime.
In the OT, Eisch won the match with an early takedown to take home the gold.
It was also a historic evening in the Division 2 tournament at Adams-Friendship. Two Rivers’ Matty Bianchi was the 19th wrestler in the history of the state of Wisconsin to win four singles titles and to take gold in the final due to a technical fall.
Oconto Falls’ Clayton Whiting added his third national title and locked his opponent in the final game.
In Division 3, Jack Severin von Kewaunee finished his high school career with a second national title and scored a late farewell to hold off his opponent at 132. The Wisconsin Badgers recruit was the only winner in Northeast Wisconsin in Division 3.
