CHURUBUSCO — Churubusco senior Jason Nicodemus is going to end his season where dreams are made: at the state wrestling tournament in Indianapolis.

Nicodemus has already had a memorable season. Before adding a state trip to his resume, he won the NECC championship at 220 pounds and was also a sectional and regional champion.

This will be the first ‘Busco wrestler to advance to state in two years.

Currently, Nicodemus has a season record of 28-1. He suffered his first loss of the season at semi-state to eventual champ Fletcher Miller of Kokomo, ending up in third place at the tournament last Saturday.

In the first round of the state tournament, Nicodemus will face a wrestler who also only has one loss on the year.

First-round action for the state tournament will kick off at 6 p.m. Friday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. All other rounds take place Saturday.
