Congrats Asa what a ride it's been this year.I wasn't there for all of it but the parts I got to see have been exciting as it gets. Congrats on being the first Freshmen Placer for Avon and our first state champ since Lynn Panko in 2005!!                                                              

and 4 of his losses were to Mills and 2 to Murphy

Question: Asa didn't win Sectional, Regional, or Semi-State. Is he the only State Champ this year to not be Sectional, Regional, or Semi-State champ? How many times has this happened over the years?

Last I can remember was Steve Stahl from Elkhart memorial. I believe he lost to Ryan Konrath at Sectional, regional, and Semi-State, and went on to win it all.

Steve Stahl is a recent one. Even more interesting was that his opponent in the finals Marcus Shrewsbury beat Stahl's nemesis Ryan Konrath in the quarters and Stahl beat Shrewsbury's nemesis Jake Salas in the quarters. Also that season Stahl beat Bellmont's Billy Baker in the ticket round...Baker went on to win state the next year.
