Wrestling team defeats Middleville

Last Wednesday, the varsity wrestling team improved its record to 13-1 with a win against Middleville. Brothers Collin and Logan Welcher each came out on top in their matches against some high quality competition.

“I’m pretty proud,” Collin Welcher said. “I wasn’t as aggressive as I could have been, I could have made more shots.

“As a team I think we did pretty good,” Welcher added. “Even with some of our starters out we still wrestled really well.”

Welcher is currently ranked 2nd at 119 pounds behind Dean Summers of Lapeer West.

Welcher and Chance Smith both believe the team this year is the best we’ve had in a few years and have a good chance at going far.

Both of them also agree that the one team standing in our way of going to state is Allegan. The Allegan wrestling team is currently ranked fourth in Division II.
