The first trip to the state wrestling meet for Andrew Rohret will be a two-day stay.

The Clear Creek Amana junior will try to make it more on Friday.

Rohret made sure of that on Thursday as he bounced back from a loss in the opening round of the Class 2A state meet to stay alive with a 5-3 win over Oscar Olmos of Harlan in a first-round consolation match at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.

Rohret lost an 8-4 decision to ninth-ranked Joey Busse of Humboldt in the 145-pound opening round in his state meet debut on Thursday

Rohret (38-14) kept his season alive another day with his 5-3 win over Olmos.

On Friday Rohret will face the loser of the quarterfinal between top-ranked Noah Fye (38-2) of New Hampton and No. 6 Ryan Steffen (35-8) of Crestwood in a second-round consolation match.
