The first tournament of the 2018-2019 MYWA Western Region was hosted by Orchardview wrestling. West Michigan Pursuit entered 15 grapplers to Orchardview. We also had three grapplers travel to Iowa to compete at the Hawkeye Nationals. 

Blake Peasley entered the 5th/6th grade age group, 95 lb wt class going 3-2 finishing in 5th at Nationals. Peasley also entered the Eaton Rapids tournament in the 95 lb 11/12 age group and claimed his first championship of the season. 

At the Orchardview tournament, our team placed 13 of our competitors in the top four. Out of 61 battles, WMP claimed 39 victories. 67 lb Jaxen Bowyer, 7/8 age group; 78 lb Logan Galinis, 9/10 age group and 85 lb Isaiah Sostenes, 11/12 age group all finished 4th. 61 lb Desmond Smith, 7/8 age group finished 3rd. 66 lb Kellen Wekesser, 9/10 age group and 58 lb Blake Werekema, 7/8 age group both finished 2nd. And Champions of the day are 69 lb Evan Andrews, 9/10 age group; 85 lb Alex Buskirk, 11/12 age group; 58 lb Tatianna Castillo, 7/8 age group; 49 lb Brody Compau, 7/8 age group; 54 lb Carter Giles, 9/10 age group; 90 lb Ayden McClurken, 11/12 age group and 75 lb Josh Vasquez, 11/12 age group. Congratulations to all of the grapplers for stepping out on the mat and working as hard as they did. 

“I was very pleased at the progress from several of our wrestlers,” said Heach Coach, Dave Andrus. “Lesson plans have been adjusted and have had positive results at a faster pace. I truly have some of the best parents in the sport and am grateful to them.”
