CSY wrestlers travel to Spartan country

By James Streeter

The Cedar Springs Youth Wrestling (CSYW) club traveled to Sparta this past weekend for yet another MyWAY West Region tournament. The Red Hawk grapplers faced stiff competition as 50 teams traveled to Sparta High School. The Red Hawks managed 20 medals on the day but also finished first overall in pins with 35 (53:53), 3rd in total match points with 423, and 6th in tech falls with 3 (9:08). 

Coach Scott Marsman had this to say about the days wrestling. “We had a lot of wrestlers competing in their first ever tournament today and it was really good for all of our wrestlers to get as much mat time as they did today.”

In the 2013-15 age group Scott Odren managed a 2nd place finish in the 40lb bracket in his first ever tournament! Also in the age group Ethan Trompen brought home a 4th place finish in the 58lb bracket.

Moving onto the 2011-12 age group Avery Gitchel and Dawson Pike both earned 4th place medals in the 55lb and 58lb weight classes respectively. On the novice side there were a pair of 2nd place finishes with Deacon Reynolds in the 49lb bracket and Hudson Cassiday in the 55lb bracket. Rounding out the age group was Emily VanGessel with a hard fought 4th place finish in the 82lb weight class.

The 2009-2010 age group flexed its muscle again with a number of Red Hawks earning top spots. Eli Gunderson took 2nd place in the Open 57lb bracket while a pair of Red Hawks medaled in the 72lb bracket with Tucker Crystal taking the top spot and Issac Gitchel taking 3rd. In the combined weight class of 100 and 110lbs Jon Libera took 2nd and Alex Hanes finished 3rd. On the novice side Elijah Elam finished 1st in the combined bracket of 54 and 57lbs. Tim Smith and Deacon Reynolds both had strong showings as they both took top spots in the 81lb and 95lb brackets respectively. 

In the 2007-08 age group Spencer Schoenborn took 4th place in the 80lb bracket while his brother Rory Schoenborn managed a 2nd place finish in the 105lb bracket. In the combined bracket of 112 and 119lbs Hudson Crystal earned 1st place. Also in a combined bracket of 112 and 119lbs Beau Savage also earned a 1st place finish.

The lone Red Hawk in the 2005-06 age group was Wyatt Cooper who muscled his way to a 4th place finish in the 220lb weight class.

This Sunday the Red Hawks will travel to Ada and Forest Hills Eastern High School for some more MyWAY West Region action.
