BETHLEHEM Ever since he started wrestling, Northwestern's Michael Ortiz has been used to being the shorter guy.
At 5-5, the Tiger junior has found himself looking up to most of his opponents when taking the mat.
On Saturday night, in the 152-pound District 11 Class AA championship match against Palmerton's Cody Grohotolski at Liberty High School, the same held true.
But despite giving up seven inches to his fellow Colonial League wrestler, Ortiz did what he does most times. He won.
