Scotus Central Catholic wrestling had two members fight through the consolation bracket and earn spots at the state tournament in fourth-place district finishes on Saturday in St. Paul.

Seniors Nick Taylor and Evan Hand both took fourth and earned a second-straight trip to the state tournament.

Taylor suffered a tough 7-6 loss in the semifinals then bounced back with a pin. He lost my major decision in the third place match but was safely into state with the pin.

Hand followed a similar path with a semifinal loss before a pin ensured him state. He finished with a pinfall loss and settled for fourth.

Ben Kamrath lost 6-4 in the consolation semifinals, one round short of making it three Shamrocks at state.

Taylor was one of just two Scotus wrestlers among six to win a match last year at state. Hand was one of those, going 0-2.

Hand and Taylor begin the state tournament on Thursday in Omaha at 9:30 a.m.
