On Saturday, February 10th, the Newaygo Wrestlers travelled to Belding High School for the MHSAA Individual District Tournament.
Seniors, Makiah McCracken & Nick Simington both finished in 3rd place and went 3-1 on the day and will head to Fremont on Saturday the 17th for the MHSAA Regional Tournament.
Simington lost his first match of the day and battled back to finish in third place while McCracken lost his 3rd match and fought to the finish for 3rd as well. Both McCracken & Simington are looking to battle at Fremont, and get to the State meet at Ford Field in Detroit.
Hunter Postma had a couple of hard fought battles on the day also, and finished just short of qualifying for regionals.
“The guys put everything on the mat 110%, they represented NHS with pride and great sportsmanship and I am excited to see what Makiah and Nick do at the regional meet, and looking forward to continue to work towards Ford Field,” Coach Coucke
