Loehrke improved to 15-5 record and won his first tournament title of the season with an impressive 8-2 decision over a Coleman wrestler in the finals.
“Loehrke has been in the finals of all three individual tournaments he has wrestled in this season,” coach Tim Potratz said. “He has learned how to win the close matches against tough opponents and should be ready for a big postseason run in February.
