Veeser 4th, Roman 5th at State Wrestling Tourney

Two Door County wrestlers medaled at last weekend’s WIAA state individual wrestling tournament at the Kohl Center in Madison.

In the girls division, Southern Door’s Hailey Veeser placed fourth at 138 pounds.

“Placing fourth wasn’t what she had hoped for, but still a great showing,” said Eagles head coach Jerry Englebert.

Veeser won her first two matches on decisions, before losing her semifinal match on a pin. She then won her consolation semifinal on a pin before being pinned in the third-place match.

In the boys competition, Sturgeon Bay/Sevatopol’s Ben Roman placed fifth in Division 2 at 285 pounds, having won three of his five matches at state.
