Months of hard work and dedication to one of the toughest sports known to man has paid off for Red Hawk youth wrestlers. From March 28 to March 30, over 2,500 wrestlers, ages 4 to 19, competed at the MYWAY State Championships held at the Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek, MI. Cedar Springs Youth Wrestling Club sent a grand total of 17 state qualifiers to compete at the finals. Of those 17 wrestlers, 12 placed in the top 6, further qualifying them to compete at Nationals. Another accomplishment, not held by any other club in the area, is that Cedar Springs crowned a total of four 2014 State Champions this year!

Landon Demorest took on Mason Willis from Jr Marauders in the championship round. Demorest, who had a career record of 1 win and 2 losses against Willis, defeated Willis with a score of 3-2, making him the 2014 State Champion in the 47lb 9/10 division.

Ryan Ringler went undefeated, 4 pins and one decision, on a chart of 30 wrestlers.  Ringler, with a second round pin against runner-up Devin Trevino from Oxford, was crowned State Champion at 158lb in the 11/12 division.

Sisters, Reese and Allexis Gonzales both took State Champion in the first MYWAY Girls State Tournament.  Reese, who weighed in at 92lbs, earned her State Championship title with first round pins against all of her opponents in the 12 and under Heavy Weight division. Allexis, a seventh grader, took State Champion with one pin and two decisions in the 14 and under 122/130 combined weight division, taking championship over 8th grader, Brittney Ratliff from Onsted.

Pistachio Gonzales battled his way back on a chart of 26 wrestlers after suffering a second round loss to state runner-up, Da’Quavon White from Pontiac Huskies. He worked back to take third at 58lb in the 5/6 division!

Tommy Stevens, who wrestled at 58lb in the 7/8 division also worked his back on a 33 person chart. Suffering only one loss, Stevens took third after a 45 second pin against Oxford wrestler, Auggie Anderson.

Cora Gonzales, who competed at 52lb in the Girls 8 and under division, took a very impressive third place finish.  This was her first year wrestling and she plans to continue.

Rounding off the third place finishers, was high schooler, Jordan Ringler. After his initial loss in the second round, Jordan won his next five matches, three pins and two decisions, to take third place against Michael Gibbs from Waterford.

Zoe Gonzales took fourth in the Girls State 12 and under 76lb division.

Veronica Tapia took fifth in the Girls State 8 and under 44lb division.

On a 29 person chart at 63lb in the 9/10 division, Trevor Marsman wrestled his way to a sixth place finish with a total of four wins and two losses.

Aiden Bouwens, who went 4-2 on a 20 person chart, also finished sixth place at 100lb in the 9/10 division.

The Cedar Springs Youth wrestlers did very well during the 2014 season and will continue to excel against some of the toughest wrestlers here in Michigan and the nation because they ARE the toughest. They work hard and are determined to be champions.
