WMP wrestler wins at national tournament

On Saturday, February 12, Luke Egan traveled to Monticello, Minnesota, for the Gopher State Nationals tournament. Egan entered the 105 lb weight class in the 7th/8th grade age division. He wrestled his way into the finals and claimed his 3rd Championship Title at a National tournament this season. This is also his second Midwest Tour earning the coveted Belt. Out of three National Tournaments, Egan had a total of 2 points scored on him. 

“When I think of Luke, I gain a sense of accomplishment,” said head coach Dave Andrus. “I started this program back in 2010, and my main focus was to give back what I have learned from my own wrestling experience and the passion I have for this sport. Luke has been with me since kindergarten. I can look back at all of his success, his triumphs and his losses, and I am forever grateful for the trust he and his parents have given me. He has far surpassed my expectations of him.” 

On Sunday, February 13, WMP entered five grapplers to compete at Grand Haven. Four finished in the placement rounds. Out of 19 matches, 11 victories were claimed. 69 lb Jaxson Babcock, 9/10 age group finished 4th. 114 lb Caleb Austin, 13/15 age group finished 3rd. Heavy Weight Mason Carringer finished as Runner Up. Champion of the day was 90 lb Jaesek Homrich 9/10 Novice age group. 

This past Sunday, WMP entered eight grapplers to compete at Grandville and six finished in the placement rounds. Out of 22 matches, 14 victories were claimed. 78 lb Jackson Farrell, 9/10 age group finished 3rd. 37 lb Camdon Farrell, 5/6 age group and 78 lb JJ Carringer, 9/10 Novice age group finished as Runner Up.  Champions were Heavy Weight Mason Carringer, 11/12 Novice age group and 107 lb Luke Egan, 13/15 age group.
