Garett Allemang has had his sights on two things all season - winning a state championship and reaching the school record for most career wins.
With one more match, the Neligh-Oakdale senior could have both.
Wrestling at 152 pounds, Allemang will face familiar foe Drew Loberg this afternoon with the state championship on the line. It'll be the fourth time this season they've battled.
Allemang one the first match with Loberg taking the next two, including a sudden death victory at the Neligh-Oakdale Invite.
Should Allemang capture the win in what will be their final opportunity to face each other in their careers, it'll be more than just a state championship for Allemang. It'll be to tie a school record.
At districts, Allemang became just the second wrestler in school history to capture 150 wins. With a win Saturday afternoon, he'll have 155 wins.
That would tie Allemang and Scott Kester for the most wins in school history.
