Bachmann suffered a loss to Lakeville South senior Eric Hensel in the opening round of the tournament, but had a chance to stay alive.

Because of the loss, Bachmann -- who was 30-8 on the year and unranked in Class AAA at 171 pounds -- needed Hensel, who was 38-0 on the year and ranked second in Class AAA at 171 pounds, to defeat Cambridge-Isanti junior Clayton Jennissen (38-6) in the Class AAA individual quarterfinals in order to continue in the consolation round or "wrestlebacks," where he could contend for as high as third place. However, Hensel lost to the third-ranked Jennissen 9-5 in the quarterfinals, ending Bachmann's state tournament and high school wrestling career.
