“West Michigan Pursuit would like to also recognize Blake Peasley for his act of kindness to a fellow competitor,” said Head Coach Dave Andrus. “His finals match was against Teddy MacGregor of Chippewa Hills. After learning Teddy’s story, Blake donated his Monster Medal and bracket to him. Blake’s family has also been affected like many other families by cancer and like Teddy, the fight for a cure. On and off the mat, these kids have a heart of gold. I couldn’t be more proud,” added Andrus.
