Post travels to Branson


 

This week the Post traveled with the Hall family and we received a photo before they even returned home! Gerald and Amy Hall, of Cedar Springs, met up with Amy’s twp sisters and families in Branson, Missouri. “We are spending a week here and visiting sites close by,” said Amy. “It’s wonderful being with family from Richmond, Virginia and West Virginia. Lots of fun and laughs.  I even rode on a zip line!” They also went to see the Dolly Parton Dixie Stampede, and took a trip to the Lake of the Ozark, Arkansas.

Thanks so much to the both of you for taking us with you!

WMP wrestlers end season at national tournaments


By Barbra Chong

West Michigan Pursuit had wrestlers registered to compete in two different National tournaments last weekend.

Drew Moro traveled to Missouri for the Adidas Nationals. Moro entered the 2nd Grade division in the 61 lb wt class. He went 3-1 for the day, finishing in 2nd Place, and earning All American status. He ended with a 44-11 season record. Moro also entered their Mohawk contest and won with 190 votes.

The rest of the team traveled to Battle Creek for NUWAY Nationals. As a team, West Michigan Pursuit finished 32 out of 297 teams. WMP entered seven wrestlers and five earned All American status by placing in the top 8.

Chayson Eberspeaker entered the 7/8 age group in the 64 lb wt class. He went 2-2 for the day, finishing in 7th Place and ending with a 36-11 season record. Quinten Cassiday entered the 7/8 age group in the 61 lb wt class. He went 4-2 for the day, finishing in 5th Place and ending with a 52-6 season record.

Josh Vasquez and Blake Werkema both finished in 4th Place. Vasquez entered the 9/10 age group in the 59 lb wt class. He went 4-2 for the day and ended with a 48-7 season record. He also made the top 100 for number of pins for the National tournament. He had 3 pins with a combined time of 4:45 out of 1,221 wrestlers. Werkema entered the 4/6 age group in the 47 lb wt class. He went 3-2 for the day and ended with a 50-5 season record.

Kellen Weckesser entered the 7/8 age group in the 54 lb wt class. He went 3-1 for the day, finishing in 2nd Place and ending with a 40-15 season record.

“My mission from the start has always been the Pursuit of Champions,” said Head Coach Dave Andrus. “I am extremely proud of the success we are having. It’s not always about how these kids win; recovering after an emotional loss and continuing to succeed is equally important. These are valuable life lessons as they continue to grow and mature. I feel fortunate to have so many parents trust me as I try to instill these values into their kids.”

The Chapmans, of Sand Lake, and the Sandersons, of Cedar Springs, travelled to Branson, Missouri to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles (Leviticus 23:33-43) September 27th through October 6th. For eight days we dwelled in our temporary booths (a rustic cabin in the woods) and attended church services each day. Branson was a beautiful place in the Ozark Mountains and had lots to do, so when we weren’t busy with church activities we got to enjoy some of the local attractions. A group of us went to Silver Dollar City, an amusement park, some of us visited the Titanic Museum, and others enjoyed an aquarium. A few were lucky enough to go to the light and sound theatre to see “Jonah.” There was so much to see and do, eight days wasn’t enough.
