This is the second biggest regular season tournament of the year in Michigan, next to the Super Bowl of Wrestling, which was held last month in Lansing. Cedar Springs continues to prove it is a power to be reckoned with, bringing home a total of 13 trophies, more than any other club in the MYWAY league. Out of those 13, seven were Champions!
Champions this year were Austin Averill, Cody Averill, Landon Demorest, Trevor Marsman, Ryan Ringler, Jordan Ringler, and George Gonzales Jr. The sole runner-up was Allexis Gonzales. Taking third place finishes were Chase Sarniak, Keaton Klaasen and Logan Hull. Rounding out the bunch in fourth place were Pistachio Gonzales and Sam Couturier. Even though wrestling season is slowly winding down, with regionals less than a month away, these Red Hawks are getting geared up to make this the best season yet.
