Sparta's Matt Tourdot lost a close 6-5 match to Jackson Hein of Wausau West. With the victory, Hein notched his 50th victory of the year, but it didn't come easy. Tourdot pushed Hein to the final second, but came up just short of advancing to his first ever state title appearance.
Tourdot will take his 40-3 record into the Consolation semifinals against Nick Broadway (42-4) of Hartford Union. Tourdot wrestled Broadway earlier this year in the finals of the West Allis Invite losing 4-2. Expect this match to be another close one.
