West Michigan Pursuit traveled to Grandville High School this past weekend to compete at NEMWA State and the Meijer State Games. The philosophy of the Meijer State Games of Michigan is that everyone participates regardless of age or ability; everyone is welcome and everyone plays. WMP entered 13 grapplers to compete and nine placed in the top four. Out of 49 battles, WMP claimed 31 victories. Individual results are as follows:

Third place medalists include 95 lb Gage Bowen, 9/10 age group; 59 lb Michael Cannon (NEMWA State) 9/10 age group; and 61/64 lb Isaiah Sostenes, 7/8 age group.

Second place medalists include 55 lb Quinton Cassiday, 7/8 age group; 61/64 lb Luke Egan; 52 lb Kellen Weckesser, 7/8 age group; and 133 lb Maston Wood, 11/12 age group.

Champions are 43/49 lb Jayden Marcano-Cruz, 7/8 age group and 72/77 lb Blake Peasley, 7/8 age group.

Our numbers were down this week, but we plan to come back in full force next week,” said Head Coach Dave Andrus.
