Wrestlers pin defeat on Northview


 

The Cedar Springs wrestling team moved into sole possession of second place in the OK Bronze with a victory over homestanding Northview. Cedar took a big early lead in the upper weights beginning with a void at 171, followed by pins at 189 and 215 by juniors Austin Wamser and Teddy Edwards who both recorded their 20th victories. Northview voided to Partick DePiazza at heavyweight. When the match shifted back to the lightweights, freshman Jordan Ringler pinned in 36 seconds to run the lead to 30-0, but Northview stormed back with five straight wins of their own including a 6-5 win at 135 to make the score 30-25.

In a wild back and forth match at 140, sophomore Anthony Topolski pulled out a 26-15 win to earn four team points to push the lead to 34-25. At 145 Mike Smith quickly recorded a first period pin to make the lead an insurmountable 40-25. Cedar Springs voided at 152 but moved senior Jarrod Vodry up to 160 where he recorded the 100th win of his career with a pin. Final score 46-31 in favor of the Red Hawks.

An interesting twist to the match was provided by the rival coaches being former teammates, which increased the intensity of the match. Cedar coach Nick Emery and Northview coach Eric Fransen both were Red Hawk wrestlers from 1998-2001, and Fransen formerly was an assistant coach in the CS program.

With the win the Red Hawks secured second place in the OK Bronze needing wins against Forest Hills Eastern and Northern to earn the number two seed in the conference tournament.

Overall, the team dual record is 13-10 including a second place finish last weekend at the Pine River Invitational. Saturday 4 wrestlers placed at the Lakeview Individual Tournament. Pat DePiazza placed fourth at heavyweight while both Jordan Ringler at 103 and senior Baron Lenardson at 125 placed third. Junior Teddy Edwards pulled out heartpounding overtime win to be tournament champion at 215 pounds.

Ringler is off to a fast start to his high school career with a team leading 23 wins followed by Edwards with 22 wins including 15 pins. State ranked Zack Wamser has piled up 19 wins while Lenardson has 18 including his 100th career victory.
