Michigan Girls State Finals
By Jacquie Troupe
Seventy-two girls grappled for the chance to become the Girls Michigan State Champion at Fenton High School Sunday, February 26. They participated in a freestyle wrestling clinic then proceeded to take that experience to the mats. Led by Coach Brandon Wood, four Cedar Springs ladies competed in this round robin event.
“I was very happy with their performance today!” said Wood. “We lost some matches but made great advances in their techniques. I’m so proud of these ladies!”
In the Elementary Folkstyle 3-5 Grade division, 49lb class, Caleigh Wood placed 3rd after two matches.
In the Middle School 6-8th Grade division, 105lb Class, Annabelle Wood placed 6th after five matches. In the 115lb class, Ashly Erxleben placed 2nd after two matches. In the 150lb, class Ariana Meyers placed 2nd after three matches.
