Neumann off to semifinals, Malacek in quarterfinals
MADISON - New Richmond's Joel Neumann and St. Croix Central's Marcus Malecek both advanced through the WIAA State Individual Wrestling Tournament Thursday.
It took Neumann four overtimes to win by criteria over Stoughton's Jessie Nelson in the first round at heavyweight. Neumann held down Nelson for the :30 seconds of the sudden death OT.
"The work I've done so far and the help I've gotten from the coaches helped me win," Neumann said.
