MADISON — One year ago, it looked like Rice Lake’s Chase Schmidt was on his way to a semifinal bout. He had scored points against Freedom’s Seth Vosters in the 160-pound bracket before a quick reversal rolled him up. Before he could blink, the whistle had blown to signify he had been pinned. It happened quicker than a hiccup.
