Blake Peasley takes national championship title
West Michigan Pursuit thought that the MYWA State Finals would be their last tournament of the season but we have some wrestlers who were not ready to end their season quite yet. There is the National United Wrestling Association for Youth (NUWAY). This competition typically brings the top 8 wrestlers from each state to compete. WMP brought five grapplers to compete and all five brought home a coveted All American Status Title.
“I have a core group of kids who can’t get enough wrestling. Looking forward to training these young kids during the off season and start out strong next year, said Owner and Head Coach, Dave Andrus.”
