INDIANAPOLIS â€” Last year, Abraham Hallâ€™s fourth-place finish at semistate earned him a tough draw heading into the state wrestling finals, and he missed the cut from Fridayâ€™s opening round to the second day of the tourney Saturday.
The Bremen seniorâ€™s heavyweight championship at Merrillville last Saturday gave him a more favorable draw this time around, and heâ€™s hoping to capitalize with a top finish as the 74th Annual IHSAA Individual State Wrestling Finals get underway Friday at 6 p.m. with the quarterfinals set to begin Saturday at 9:30 at Conseco Fieldhouse.
