West Michigan Pursuit wrestlers continue to surge forward, as evidenced by their performance at the Cedar Springs open tournament held this past Sunday. “We entered 15 wrestlers and 10 came home with medals. I am very excited at the progress our kids are making every week,” says Pursuit owner Dave Andrus. “This tournament was very tough with 539 wrestlers. Everyone battled and made me proud of what we do.”
While most wrestling clubs operate “on season” only, WMP is unique in that many of its wrestlers train twice weekly year round. With a recent move to a larger facility just 5 miles south of their previous location, membership continues to grow, drawing young wrestlers from 7 area school districts, including Cedar Springs. With the local tournament behind them, they are preparing to travel to Hart next weekend for their annual Hart Attackers Tournament. At this point in the season, wrestlers will compete every Sunday until regional tournaments begin the weekend of March 10th. MYWA Individual State Championships will be held at Kellogg Arena the weekend of March 23.
