HARTINGTON — Cedar Catholic’s amazing upset win over top-seeded Weeping Water Thursday carried a lot of emotions with it.
The win put the Lady Trojans in the semifinals, while it sent the top-seeded Indians packing.
Cedar Catholic head coach Craig Wortmann has nowbeen on both ends of that equation.
Wortmann was on the wrong end of a similar upset when he was a senior in high school for Coach Bob Geary’s Cedar Catholic Trojan boys basketball team.
Cedar entered the 1997 Class C 1 State Tournament undefeated and as the topseed in the tourney.
The Trojans faced off against eighth-seed Father Flanagan in that contest, and ended up falling 62-58, despite Wortmann’s team-high 25-point scoring effort.
