Culver Academies sophomore Kayla Miracle is surrounded by media following her 106-pound weight class loss Friday night at the IHSAA state wrestling finals.
BREMEN â€” The best things are worth waiting for.
With 1:08 left in regulation, Abraham Hall scored a takedown against Elkhart Centralâ€™s Dominique Stauffer, then held on for a 3-1 decision and the state championship in the heavyweight title match of the 74th annual IHSAA individual state wrestling finals at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse Saturday.
And while Hallâ€™s state championship dreams may have finally culminated when he stepped atop the heavyweight podium Saturday, the origins of the Bremen seniorâ€™s title run can really be seen in the 2010-11 season.
Bremenâ€™s Nolan Filchak won the 100 butterfly at the South Bend Riley Boys Swim Sectional Saturday to earn the Lionsâ€™ sole berth to the state swim finals next weekend.
Oregon-Davis sophomore guard Alicia McIntosh put up a combined 25 points in two games for the Lady Cats in their Class A Caston Regional games Saturday.
