Youth wrestlers keep on winning

Youth wrestlers keep on winning

By James Streeter

A host of Red Hawks hit the road this past Sunday on their way to both Shepard High School and Lakewood High school for more MyWAY wrestling action. Cedar had a good showing at both venues as they captured four medals at Shepard and 13 medals at Lakewood.  Over the weekend the Red Hawks managed 29 pins and 303 match points. Coach Marsman was impressed with the wrestling saying, “The competition level at both Shepard and Lakewood was some of the stiffest we’ve faced all season long but the work that our wrestlers have been putting in is surely paying off!”

At the Shepard Greights tournament four wrestlers were able to bring back a total of four medals. In the Open 55lb weight class Hudson Cassiday battled to a 2nd place finish while Sierra Streeter ended the day with a 4th place finish. In the Girls 58lb bracket Red Hawks took the top two spots as best friends Sierra Streeter and Taylor Crystal took 1st and 2nd respectively, proving that they are two of the best girl wrestlers in the state at that weight.

Lakewood High School also saw a number of Red Hawk grapplers bring home hardware. In the 2013-2015 age group Ethan Trompen took 1st and Henrry Galinis placed 3rd in the 55lb weight class while Kamden Kohler wrestled his way to a 4th place finish in the 58lb bracket.

In the 2011-2012 age group Deacon Reynold got things started for the Red Hawks with a 3rd place finish in the 49lb bracket. In the combine weight classes of 77 and 82lbs Jaxon Fitzerald managed a 3rd place finish while Christian Homrich also earned 3rd place honors in the 64lb weight class.

Moving ahead into the 2009-2010 age group Eli Gunderson continued his winning ways with a 2nd place finish in the 57lb weight class while Tucker Crystal gutted his way to a 4th place finish in the 72lb weight class. Dayton Reynold had another solid showing as he has recently moved from novice to open earning himself a 2nd place finish in the combined weight class of 90 and 95lbs. Jon Libera’s medal count continues to grow as he earned a 2nd place finish  in the 100lb bracket while Tim Smith earned a 1st place finish in the 81lb bracket.

Rounding out the action for the Red Hawks was 2nd and 3rd place finishes respectively for Caleb Austin and Kale Faurot in the combined bracket of 80 and 85lbs.

This week the Red Hawks will travel to Allendale where they will compete on GVSU’s campus for another MyWAY West Region showdown.
