Miller lost to Larkin who was later pinned by Schoeff.  Schoeff beat Frazier 2-0 and finished as the runner up.

IL freshman state champ Lemley is staying home his year and wrestling for Chesterton, instantly making them a title contender.  Lemley had a great tournament beating Lowery, Hooper, and Schoeff.
