Connor Knapp tore his meniscus friday night in a match with a tough Bethel who pinned Lee from brownsburg. (Connors only loss of the season) Despite this, Connor still managed to get the fall with a minute left in the third period losing 3-4. Saturday morning in the quarters connor won 13-0 and in the semis lost to Vaughn 5-3. Until this point he told no one of the injury including coaches, teammates, or family. Once he revealed what had happened and with the complete extent of the injury unknown, he forfeited his 3rd place match. With his quarter finals win he passed East Nobles state champion from 2009 Taylor March's 163 wins record. Over his career only two of his losses came to wrestlers who were never in a state finals match or a state champion. 4x qualifier and a 3x placer (4th,3rd,and 4th) and every year his weight class had a #1 nationally ranked wrestler or the Most outstanding wrestler at Fargo. He embraced the grind and never ran or dodged a tough weight class.
