Red Hawk wrestlers conquer Belding

Red Hawk Joe Simon (285 lb), senior, takes down his opponent.

On Wednesday, January 12, the Cedar Springs Varsity wrestling team beat Belding 53-13 at the first home match of the season. Beginning with the 171 lb class, Levi Whipple earned the first points of the night with an overtime win 5-4. A fall executed by Corey Wozniak (189 lb) midway through the second period brought the score to 9-0 in favor of the Red Hawks.
Belding countered in the 215 lb and 285 lb weight classes to tie the score 9-9.
Baron Lenardson (103 lb) rallied with a quick pin just 27 seconds into his first round to continue the momentum for the Hawks.  A major win by Jared Vodry (125 lb), a void at 130 lb for Danny Wier, and a 15-0 technical fall in the second period by Cody Oehme (135 lb) tallied the score at 40-9. With no hope for Belding to make a comeback, the Hawks earned wins by Matt Patin (140 lb) with a fall in the first period, a major win by Jake Marsman (152 lb), who kept his opponents score at zero for three periods, and a solid match by Austin Wamser (160 lb) brought the final score to 53-13 and a conference win for the Hawks.
