CHAMPAIGN – Seniors Daniel Edwards and Levi Ulmer won first-round bouts at the individual state tournament on Thursday.
With their wins, they are assured at least a spot in the wrestle-back bracket if they are unable to win in Friday’s quarterfinal matches. That round starts at 8:30 a.m. at Assembly Hall.
Ulmer (32-6) defeated Jeffrey Haley (32-11) of Quincy Notre Dame, 14-8, by taking immediate control and fighting all the way to the finish.
And as an encore, he threw up a Subway pizza sandwich all over the mat.
