The first tournament of the 2014-2015 MYWA Western Region tournament was hosted by Mona Shores last weekend.  West Michigan Pursuit took 21 grapplers to compete, with eight entering Novice and the rest entering the Open division. Our team battled 70 times with 49 ending in victory. Twenty of our young competitors placed in the tournament.

“Looking at the group of kids I have, I have a feeling this will be one of the best groups, as a whole, I’ve had to work with so far. Judging from today’s competition, I am very impressed and excited to see what the season brings,” said Owner and Head Coach, Dave Andrus.”
