Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- In the 182 pound final, West Fargo's Preston Lehmann faced Dan Hawkins from Maryland.
Just like Shearer did, Lehmann got an early takedown, then gut-wrenched Hawkins three consecutive times to win 8-0 in a minute, 37 seconds. Lehmann, a 3-time state champ, is also a National champion now, after placing 9th a year ago.
Preston Lehmann- Greco National Champ (182 lbs): "It was amazing. Last year, I put some fire underneath my belly to get up and work hard to get on top again. It paid off and I'm living the dream right now. I definitely just had to feel that I could be a national champ. I just had to trust my training."
