West Michigan Pursuit travelled to Forest Hills Eastern for the 2022 MYWAY West Regional event on March 13, 2022. This was the first Regionals hosted since 2019. WMP entered 13 grapplers, and 11 will be advancing to the State Finals at the Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo. 

Out of the 11 that will be advancing, WMP claimed six Regional Championships. Final Placements are as follows: 69 lb Jaxson Babcock, 2012 age group and 78 lb Jackson Farrell, 2011 age group both finished 3rd. Heavy Weight, Mason Carringer, 2009 age group; 80 lb Peyton Farrell, 2008 age group and 90 lb Jaesek Homrich, 2011 age group finished 2nd. This is Mason’s first year and Jaesek’s second year of wrestling. Congrats to you both! 

Regional Champions are 37 lb Camdon Farrell, 2015 age group; 58 lb Jonah Slager, 2013 age group; 100 lb Luke Egan, 2007 age group; 70 lb Carter Giles, 2009 age group; 128 lb Logan Goguen, High School division and 143 lb Blake Peasley, High School Division. 

WMP would also like to recognize the following grapplers for their impressive accomplishments. Carter Giles earned his 4th Regional Title, Blake Peasley earned his 6th Regional Title and Luke Egan earned his 7th Regional Title. 

“Overall, these kids did very well, considering how inexperienced they are. I am very excited to see how they finish the season this coming weekend,” said Head Coach Dave Andrus.
