Adam Bowling got a rematch he never expected in Saturday's in the Class A Individual State Tournament's 145-pound title match.
And, considering he had beaten Wilmington's Jake Murphy earlier this year at the St. Thomas More Challenge, all signs seemed to be pointing toward one of the Vandals' all-time winningest wrestlers bringing home the program's fourth individual state title.
