WMP wrestlers to wrestle at state

S-Wrestling-WMPThe West Michigan Pursuit team wrestled last weekend in the Western Regionals, hosted by the Lowell Arrows. West Michigan Pursuit took 24 grapplers to compete and placed 18 in the top six, with 16 moving on to battle it out at the 2015 State Finals. This year’s Finals will be held at the Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek the weekend of March 27-29. The team battled 81 times, against some tough competition, with 52 ending in victory. Only the top four from each weight class, age group and Region move on to compete at the State Finals.
