The New Prague Trojans advanced to the semifinals at the State Class AA wrestling tournament Thursday morning with a 32-19 win over Adrian.

The Trojans won the next four matches to take a 23-10 lead. New Prague lost the next two, by decision and by fall, but Nathan Preston clinched things with a 35-second fall at 220 pounds and Zach Lafavor closed out the match with a 3-0 decision.
