It was another successful tournament for the youth grapplers from Cedar Springs as they headed south down US 131 to Comstock Park High School for another MyWAY West Region tournament! Thirty Red Hawks competed in fierce competition with 21 coming away with medals. Cedar also found itself in the top three in pins (1st with 32) and match points (3rd with 352). 

Coach Jake Marsman had this to say about results. “To have some of the finishes we’re having with just a few weeks of practice under our belts makes me optimistic looking ahead to some of the bigger tournaments.”

Starting things off for the Red Hawks in the 2013-2015 age group was a 3rd place finish from Ethan Trompen in the Open 55lb bracket.

The 2011-2012 age group continued to be a strength of the Cedar Springs line up with Red Hawks medaling in nine consecutive weight classes. On the novice side of things Deacon Reynolds finished 2nd in the 49lb bracket while Hudson Cassidy brought home a 1st place finish in the 55lb bracket, and Tristan Wilkerson managed a hard fought 2nd place in the 58lb bracket. The open side of the age group saw two anchors of the age group, Brycen Alber (49lbs) and Sierra Streeter(52lbs) place 1st and 2nd respectfully. Dawson Pike wrestled well in a competitive 58lb bracket and muscled out a 4th place finish while Dillon Vandyke continued his winning ways in the 67lb weight class with a 1st place finish. Rounding out the age group was Ben Streeter with a hard-earned 4th place finish in the 97lb weight class.

In the 2009-2010 age group, novice side, Timothy Smith (81lbs) and Dayton Reynolds (95/100lbs) both managed 1st place finishes on the day. On the open side Eli Gunderson (54/57lbs) and Jon Libera (90/95lbs) both earned 3rd place finishes.

The 2007-2008 age group got started on the novice side with a pair of 2nd place finishes by Kale Faurot in the 85/90 bracket and Calvin Kerridge in the 112lb bracket. On the open side Deegan Pike (75lbs) and Rory Schoenborn (105/112lbs) both earned 4th place finishes. Continuing on Hudson Crystal (112lbs) and Gavyn Byxbe (119lbs) both ended the day with 3rd place finishes.

In the upper age group, Wyatt Cooper placed 2nd in the 2005-2006 age group, open 220lb bracket while Benjamin Brunner managed a 1st place finish in the HS combined bracket of 128/133/138lbs bracket.

The CSY Wrestlers will take the mat again this coming Sunday, December 15 at Muskegon Orchard View for another MyWAY West Region match up.
