While his team mates wrestled locally, Ryan Ringler traveled to Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he was crowned Great Lakes National Champion in the U-12 Heavyweight division.

Cedar Springs youth coaches George Gonzales Sr, Jake Marsman, Bryan Goike, and Paul Ringler are all very excited to see all of the talent being shown in the youth program, which feeds into the Middle and High School Programs. Coach George says, “I love watching the middle and high school wrestlers. Especially, those who were once part our youth program.” He also hopes that the wrestling program will be restored to its full potential, as Cedar was once known to be a wrestling powerhouse.

On March 4, 2011, Greenville held the last regular season tournament for the 2012 MYWAY Wrestling. The trophy tournament was capped at 400 wrestlers to avoid being overcrowded by those looking to win the coveted trophies.

The youth Hawks did quite well, bringing home a total of nine trophies. First place winners were Landon Demorest, Aiden Bouwens, Trevor Marsman, Logan Hull, Ryan Ringler and George Gonzales Jr. Alone in second place was Reese Gonzales. Allexis Gonzales and Jeremy Wildfong took fourth in their divisions.

Austin Emmorey also competed that same weekend in Montabella, taking 3rd in his division. Overall it has been a very impressive regular season for the youth wrestlers. Make sure you see next week’s regional results to see which of your favorite wrestlers qualified for state finals.
