Lorenz will wrestle for gold at District meet

NORFOLK — Cedar Catholic’s Andrew Lorenz already has his second straight trip to the State Tournament sewn up, but now he is looking for even more. The 220-pound Cedar Catholic senior advanced Saturday morning to the C2-2 District final with a pin over  O’Neill’s Thomas Schipporeit.

Lorenz worked Schipporeit for a takedown halfway through the first period to go up 2-0 in the semifinal match.

Lorenz started the second period on the bottom, but Schipporeit was unable to hang onto him, and the veteran Cedar wrestler earned the reversal and picked up back points on the move. Schipporeit earned an escape late in the period to make it 7-1. Lorenze closed out the second period with a takedown, then earned the pin to advance to the title match against   top-seed Houson Huss of Stanton.
