Blackman a point short in semifinals
MADISON - They certainly thought it was a pin.
New Richmond's coaches certainly thought prep wrestler Shane Blackman pinned his semifinal opponent, Kolton Jansen of Kaukauna, at the WIAA State Wrestling Tournament Friday evening.
That's because time ran out on Blackman after executing a brilliant five-point throw which brought him to the brink of victory and the Division 1 finals at 126 pounds. But it was not to be.
