2 Crusader Wrestlers head to State!

From yesterday's Waukesha Freeman -


Memorial’s Gromacki wins sectional title

MILWAUKEE — Sam Gromacki pulled off quite an upset in advancing to the WIAA Division 2 state wrestling tournament.

Gromacki, a senior at Catholic Memorial High School, pinned his way through Saturday’s Milwaukee Lutheran Sectional. His biggest pin was a 51-second victory over Wisconsin Lutheran junior Quinton Reid, which was Reid’s first loss of the season.

Gromacki took Reid to his back with a hip toss, and approximately 15 seconds the referee signalled the pin. Entering the state meet, Gromacki (40-6) is ranked fourth in Division 2 by Wisconsin Wrestling Online. Reid is ranked third.

Gromacki will not be alone at the Kohl Center in Madison. Senior Mikey Wurster finished second at 182 pounds to advance to state, with the top three wrestlers in each weight class earning a trip to Madison in Division 2.

Wurster won a 10-2 major decision in his first match and a 5-0 victory in the semifinal round. He lost 4-0 to Sheboygan Falls junior Dustin Setzer in the title match.

Wurster enters state with a 37-9 record.
