One Clermont County high school wrestler advanced to this weekend’s state championship tournament from the Goshen Division II District Tournament.

Andrew Nealan, a New Richmond sophomore, finished fourth in the 160-pound weight class.

The first four wrestlers in each weight class advance to compete at the Schottenstein Center on the campus of Ohio State University, Columbus. Competition will take place Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
