Web Producer: Mike Mardis

The IHSAA wrestling state finals took place Saturday night at the Ceonseco Field House in Indianapolis.

Wrestlers from all over the state converged on the arena with the same goal: achieve the glory of being a state champion.

Among the champions that emerged was Andrew Howe of Hanover Central at 160 lbs. Howe ends his High School career with only one loss. That loss came his freshman year to an undefeated senior.

He is a three-time state champion with his last two championships coming on technical falls (winning by 15 points or more).

His opponent Saturday night was Michael Duckworth of Union County. Duckworth, a sophomore, went into the match at 41-3 on the season. Duckworth held off the tech. fall, but could not pull off the upset as Howe won 22-9.

Howe plans to attend the University of Wisconsin next year to wrestle.

Evansville was represented at the state tournament by Alex Weinzapfel of Mater Dei, Alex Johns of Reitz, Drew Lappe of Mater Dei and Jacob Schneider of Mater Dei.

Johns, Lappe and Schneider all finished third, while Weizapfel fell in the championship match 12-6 to finish the season the second best wrestler in the state at 119 lbs.

Chico Adams of Perry Merridian became a two time state champ at the heavyweight weight class, winning 3-2 and undefeated on the season.
