Brady Ortner

Vinton-Shellsburg's Brady Ortner points to the crowd after winning his second-round matchup in the consolation round. 

It really couldn't have been any closer. 

Reactions from Vinton-Shellsburg wrestler Brady Ortner and head coach Brian Sheston after Ortner’s 1-0 decision Friday afternoon.

Nine seconds into the second round of his second consolation match, Brady Ortner ripped himself free of Bishop Heelan's Ethan DeLeon to get back to his feet and earn himself a single point. 

It'd be the only score of the match for either wrestler. 

Ortner advanced in the consolation bracket and guaranteed himself a spot on the podium after Friday afternoon's 1-0 decision over Lemon. Ortner will now wait until tonight to face off against Harlan's Ethan Lemon when the Class 2A wrestler continue at 7:30.
