Yorktown wrestler wins individual state title

By

Yorktown senior wrestler Rhett Hiestand was the only East Central Indiana wrestler competing in the finals of tonight’s IHSAA state championship, and he made good on his appearance with a little extra work.

Wrestling in the 160-pound division, Hiestand became a a state champion with a 2-1 victory against Cathedral’s Vinny Corsaro in a super sudden death period.

After the first period, Heistand and Corsaro were scoreless. And after the second, Corsaro led 1-0. But with 30 seconds remaining, the matched was tied 1-1. It remained tied after regulation and two minutes into extra time.
Because the match had so much extra time, it eventually ended in a rarely-seen situation in which Corsaro needed to escape to win. He could not, so Heistand won.
Hiestand finished the year with an individual record of 47-2, and Corsaro finished 48-1.
