The victory earned Lossen the No. 1 seed out of the B-side of the pool, and only Matt Feast of Pennsylvania stood between him and a spot in the national cham- pionship match. Having scouted Feast, Lossen knew his opponent's weaknesses .heading into their match. "I knew he was good," Lossen said. "But I also knew he was sloppy." Lossen used Feast's weakness- es against him to gain a 8-6 victo- ry and a spot in the champi- onship. "I used (the strength in) my legs to push him around and used his own mistakes against him," Lossen added. Knowing he was now a win away from becoming a national champion, Lossen prepared with his coaches. "(My coaches) talked me through the championship match," Lossen said. "They told me to stay calm. I did that, and it let me sink into my zone. By the time it was time to wrestle I was- n't even nervous." After Lossen fell into a 30 deficit on a Johnson take down, he remained confident he would pull through. "From that point on (ajar Johnson scored), I did everything I could to make sure he wouldn't score again." Wearing his opponent down, Lossen managed to tie the match with a gut-wrench take down. Then aRer Johnson was called for stalling, Lossen gained a 4-3 advantage and cruised to the win. "As the match was winding down I saw the coaches cheer- ing," Lossen said. "Then when the match finally ended, my dad came running out of the stands and the crowd was cheering for me. It was awesome." Caught up in the moment, Lossen made his way to the Min- nesota section of the stands and jumped into the crowd. He then managed to give his morn a hug before returning to the mat. "All the training that I have done all season built up to that moment," Lossen said. "Now I can enjoy this for a ting ready for next Winona Hi son."

Extension report ision completed Winona's Lossen wins national Greco-Roman wrestling title By Mike Kaebisch Winona Daily News Before Winona's Max Lossen competed for the 209-pound GreeD-Roman championship last weekend in Fargo, N.D., he had mentally wrestled the match three times. Sitting by himself behind the competition mats and out of the spotlight,. Lossen took some time to visualize his final match. He thought: about what moves both he and his opponimt would use while mapping out what he would have to do to earn a victory. When he stepped onto the mat for the championship match, he knew what to expect. Before I stepped out there, I knew what I had to do to win," Lossen said. "I was 100-per- cent ready to go." That preparation, along with his skill and determination, carried Lossen to the title match of the GreeD-Roman National Wrestling Tournament, where he defeated Apollo Johnson of California 8-3 Monday night. "It's still sinking in," Lossen said Tuesday of his win. "Now I can sit back and enjoy this I II (Edi. note: The following appeared in a recent issue of the Winona Daily News; Max is the son of Greg and Becky (Nelson) Lossen and grand- son of Henry and Suzie Nelson rural Ortonville for a while?

After each match I just kept getting better and better," Lossen said. On the second day, Lossen steamrolled past Ryan Lack of North Dakota (10-0), Tony DeLack of Oregon (10-0) and Joshua Sears of Ohio (12-1). Now feeling in the zone, Lossen opened the third day of competition with his most diffi- cult match of the tournament. After falling into a 4-0 hole against Audrey Sharapov of New Jersey, Lossen mounted a rally and eventually knotted the score at 4-4. The score remained tied after both periods and the match went to overtime. "After I came back to tie him and force overtime I said I was never going to lose the match," Lossen said.
