Tournaments March 1
All, what a fantastic weekend for DeWitt Wrestling.
The Junior High team started off the weekend by wrestling in the largest Junior High Tournament in the State of Michigan.
The annual tournament is held at Jackson Parkside and included 36 teams from around the state. Our team despite having voids at several weights took on the challenge and rose to the occasion. In the first round DeWitt knocked off Columbia and moved on to meet Lincoln/Yipsalanti. DeWitt prevailed and moved onto the 3rd round where they met Eaton Rapids. DeWitt wrestled hard and smart and prevailed to move on to the finals against rival Grand Ledge. DeWitt wrestled hard and gave up few points but in the end Grand Ledge was able to secure the win. The DeWitt Panthers ended up runner up to Grand Ledge and should be very proud of how they all wrestled.
The Wrestling continued on Sunday where Seth Sivak and Quenten Hall each took 1st at the Fulton Tournament. Ty Brandt, Jake Brandt , Doug Trutzl Dillion Babb all placed 1st at Maple Valley. Diego Babb finished 2nd; Max Murray and Lane Boshaw placed 3rd and Armand Tavelli and Collin Parker took 4th at Maple Valley.
At the same time on Sunday the DeWitt 6th Grade and Under team was battling at Dual States in Battle Creek. The youth team battled against the top 12 teams in the State of Michigan. Despite giving up 24-30 points in voids during each dual the youth kids came together and went 2-3 for the day ending the dual season with 6th place in the state. DeWitt defeated Greenville and Linden and lost a good dual to eventual runner up Lowell. DeWitt also wrestled great against Davison and Jackson Northwest.
Kudos to all that wrestled this weekend.
