West Michigan Pursuit travelled to Orchardview for the West Region and to the Wings Center in Kalamazoo for Team State this past weekend.  

WMP entered eight grapplers to compete at Orchardview and all eight finished in the placement rounds. Out of 29 matches, WMP claimed 18 victories. 122 lb Caleb Austin, 13/15 age group and 69 lb Jaxson Babcock, 9/10 age group both finished 4th. Heavy Weight, Mason Carringer, 9/10 age group finished 3rd. 37 lb Camdon Farrell, 5/6 age group; 78 lb Jackson Farrell, 9/10 age group and 90 lb Jaesek Homrich, 9/10 age group all finished as Runner Up. Champions of the day are 78 lb JJ Carringer, 9/10 Novice age group and 80 lb Peyton Farrell, 13/15 age group. This is JJ’s first year wrestling and his very first championship.

We also had four grapplers compete on the K-8th grade team for Cedar Springs. 54 lb Jonah Slager claimed three victories for the day, he earned 11 points for the team. 102 lb Luke Egan claimed 5 victories for the day, he earned 25 points for the team. 110 lb Ayden McClurken claimed 5 victories for the day, he earned 27 points for the team. 129 lb Tyler Parmeter went undefeated, going 6-0 for the day, he earned 31 points for the team. Cedar Springs finished 2nd in their Pool and 12th out of 31 teams. 

“We have a lot of inexperienced wrestlers but it has been exciting to see the improvement shown in a small amount of time,” said Head Coach Dave Andrus.
