Lorenz still in the running for State Title

OMAHA — Cedar Catholic senior Andrew Lorenz is off to a successful start at the Class C State wrestling tournament here.

Lorenz earned a second-period pin over Zach Oliver of Kennesaw in his first match of the day Thursday in the 220-pound weight class.

Lorenz then pinned C.J. Standerford of Humboldt-Table Rock-Steinar in his second-round match. He put the 32-3 senior on his back early in the third period to earn the pin.

Lorenz will go up against Brent Hoerler of Bridgeport in his next match. Hoerler, a senior, is 35-3 on the season. The winner of that match will automatically advance to the state title match.

The loser must work his way back into contention through the wrestle-backs.
