Panthers Send Four To Omaha

Fillmore Central had four wrestlers qualify for the 2019 NSAA State Wrestling Championships after two days of competition at the talent-laden C-3 District Meet in David City. And, two Panthers were just one win away from Omaha, while a seventh grappler made it until Day 2 at Aquinas High School.
Panther heavyweight Riley Moses bulled through his district bracket, easily pinning his three opponents in under five and one-half minutes total.  Moses heads to Omaha 40-2 and a favorite to win gold. The Panther senior will face 23-10 Mitchell sophomore Keegan Weiss in the opening round this Thursday afternoon.
Gavin Hinrichs went 4-1 in David City to earn third at 160 pounds.  Three of the FC junior's wins were by pinfall including a consolation final pin of Lenners from Freeman.  Hinrichs will square off with 33-9 Conner Halverson, a junior from Gordon-Rushville, in the first round on Thursday afternoon in Omaha.  Hinrichs is 32-10 on the season.
Aidan Trowbridge punched his ticket to Omaha with a thrilling 8-7 decision over Eli Wegrzyn of Lincoln Christian in the heart-break round.  The match was tied 7-7 with 38 seconds to go before Trowbridge scored an escape.
"I've been coaching wrestling for 20 years," FC head coach Ryan Komenda said.  "And, the heart-break match that Aidan won 8-7 was the most amazing match I've ever coached."
Trowbridge went 3-2 in David City—losing two matches to Milford's Eli Vondra (31-17). The Panther freshman is 17-11 on the year and will face 33-6 sophomore Dru Mueller in the opening round in Omaha.  The Logan View wrestler was the C-2 District champion.
Panther 120-pounder Conner Nun caps the FC contingent in Omaha.  The Panther sophomore finished 3-2 in David City to earn fourth.  Nun had two pin wins in the district meet.  Nun (11-22) will square off 25-5 Stanton senior Zak Hansen in his opening match at State.  Hansen was the C-2 District champion.
Panthers Dillon Fushia (30-12) and Tanner Kline (16-8) both lost their heart-break round matches.  Fushia was 1-2 at 106 pounds and was pinned by Vandenberg of Aquinas in the fifth-place match.  Kline fell to Kuehler of Pierce in his fifth-place match.  He was 2-2 on the weekend.
Noah Monroe was 1-3 at the District Meet and finished his season at 18-25. Jared Stephens (4-30) and Hunter Stewart (2-15) were unable to garner wins.
Komenda tabbed Trowbridge as his team's Wrestler of the Week and named Hinrichs as his squad's Practice Wrestler of the Week.
