2013 State Championships
Battle Creek, MI. - The Michagan Youth Wrestling Association State Championships were held at Kellogg Arena this year due to ever expanding numbers. Nearly 2000 kids from around Michigan came to try and be named the states best. Only the top 4 wrestlers from the states 8 regions qualified for this years finals. So with 25 of the best wrestlers from around the state we saw some great matchups.

After opening with a bye, Zack wrestled Spencer Morris (Raider WC), the Northesat regions 3 seed to a 5-0 dec. Using 2 TD and an Escape to win.

In the Quarter-Finals Zack faced Metro Detroits #4 seed who had just pinned the #1 seed from the West Region. Zack was again able to use 2 TD and an escape to his advantage.

The Semi-finals saw Zack battling a very aggresive Metro #1 Seed Kyran Daniels (Warren). Kyran refused to tie up with Zack and instead used a great shot to get the early TD. After a penalty pt for an illegal slam and an escape, Zack tied up the score at 2-2 going into the 3rd period. Kyran got the escape and a late TD to secure the win.

The Conslation Semi-finals had Zack facing the southwest regions #1 seed Mykal Klein, who had beat Zack 2 weeks prior. This time an early takedown be Zack and a reversal by Klein had the score 2-2 in the 2nd. Klein but Zack to his back for 3NF before Zack battled out and reveresed Klein to his back, and nearly pinning him before time ran out making it 7-5 Zack going into the 3rd period. In the third Zack rode Klein for much of the time then cut him for 1pt and held on for the 7-6 win. Putting him in the 3-4 place match.

The battle for 3rd place against the east regions #2 seed Caleb McCabe was interesting to say the least. Zack took McCabe down in the first and held the lead going in to the 2nd period. In the second McCabe chose down, Zack put in the legs to break him down and then began running a "Churrela" tilt. as Zack was tilting McCabe for back points his own back came in contact with mat and he was called for a defensive fall. very disappointing. But thats wrestling. Learn and move on.

Nearly 2000 kids from around Michigan came to try and be named the states best. Only the top 4 wrestlers from the states 8 regions qualified for this years finals. So with 32 of the best wrestlers from around the state we saw some great matchups.

Zack wrestled out of a tough draw dominating his first match. In his second match he gave the eventual state champ all he could handle. with the score 0-0 late in the 3rd period, Zack gave up a reversal and on the reswitch was taken to his back as time ran out. In the Cons. he wrestled very determined, taking down the #1 seed from the east region 5-0. In another tough loss Zack was on top losing 2-1 in the 3rd to Sam Morgan ((CMS) #1 seed from the NE) as time was running out, he chose to let him go (3-1) in hopes of taking him down to send it to overtime. His shot was countered and he gave up the 2. Morgan finished 3rd with his only loss being to Melton. For Zack's last match he was rematched with Ben Diaz, who had beaten him 4-2 at regionals. Zack learned alot from the first match and won 6-2, taking Diaz down to his back for 2TD / 2 NF and the win.

By the second round the light went on and he was off and running. 3rd round was by far and away the most telling. it saw him tossed to his back in a head & arm but refusing to lose he fought for most of the first period just to stay off his back. For the remainder of the match, when ever the opponent attempted the H&A luke changed levels and shot scoring several takedowns and nearfall. It was later learned that his opponent placed 4th @ last years State tournament.

Michigan State University Tournament Runner-up

January 9, 2006
East Lansing, MI. - With over 960 wrestlers coming from all over Michigan and neighboring states, the Spartan Country Tournament was a great way to open the 2006 Folkstyle season.

Zack, wrestling in the 7-8 year old division at 64 lbs, had 15 solid competitors, which is as we expected.

In this 16 man bracket zack recieved the first round bye, followed by a second round match up with Caleb Knauf from the Blackhawks wrestling club, the winner of his first round match-up. Zack was able to secure a early first period pin.

During the third round Zack dropped a match to Brenden McRill of Kearsly. Brenden is the 2005 Border Wars National Champion.

Consolation Rounds - Finding himself in the wrestle backs, Zack took a 7-0 decision over Tristen Schultz of Eaton rapids and recorded a fall over Jared Sironew (2005 MYWAY State Champion) in the Consolation Finals

True Second - In the battle for true second Zack faced Nathan Schutt from the Motor City Wrestling Club ( Motor City WC ). Nathan, a 2005 MYWAY State Champion, BorderWars National Champion, AAU Ironman Champion, and AAU World Folkstlye Champion gave Zack a good match before Zack recorded the takedown. Later in the first period Zack would follow this up with 3 nearfall points. In the second period Nathan recorded a takedown and Zack the escape for a 6-2 Final score.

On a side note we thought it was very cool that the Michigan State University Spartan Wrestlers helped run the tournament. In particular Mindy and I were pleased to have Andy Simmons as the score keeper for the majority of Zack's matches. For those not familiar with Andy, Andy is a NCAA All-American and had a prep record of 219-0.

November 11, 2006
Coldwater, MI. - Zack attended Ken Chertow's weekend warrior camp this past weekend. The Weekend Warrior Camp is a unique 3 day weekend camp that was an awesome opportunity for zack to receive the personalized instruction, intense training, and timely motivation for the upcoming season.

The Camp consisted of 4 primary elements:
Technique Instruction – In a wide variety of important areas.
Intense Drilling – To perfect set–ups, timing and combinations.
Live Wrestling
Sports Science – Discussions covering mental preparation, nutrition, strength training, goal setting, earning a college scholarship and more.

Ken has been an avid student of the sport since he was fourteen years old and made a commitment to becoming a State Champion. Since then he has trained year-round, experimenting with different techniques while drilling, wrestling, and coaching young wrestlers. While coaching at Penn State and Ohio State, he has had the privilege of working with some of the finest coaches and wrestlers in the nation. He has had gone to training camps at the Olympic Training Center regularly since 1984. At these camps he trained with some of the best wrestlers in the world, expanding and polishing his repertoire daily. He also regularly analyze videotape of State, NCAA, and Olympic Championships. He knows and understands what it takes to become a Champion and am eager to share it.

Ken has carefully designed the entire technique curriculum so that everything you learn will be presented in an organized, systematic fashion. Zack is learning a system of wrestling—the same system that has made ken and many other top wrestlers successful.

I was able to meet Ken Chertow at this years Michigan Wrestling Association clinic.

Ken has found success at all levels of compitition, both as a competitor and a coach. After winning 2 State championships and Outstanding wrestler awards in West Virginia, Ken culminated his prep career by winning Junior Nationals in both freestyle and greco, and the Junior World Championships.

While studying and training at Penn State, Ken was a 3x NCAA All- American, World Espoir Champion, Pan American Champion and 1988 U.S. Olympian.

Ken also excelled in the classroom as he became a 3x Academic All-American graduating with a 3.6 G.P.A.

Ken also coached at Ohio State and Penn State. During his 3 years at OSU, he helped build the buckeyes into a national powerhouse. In 1992 he joined the PSU coaching staff and they won the National Dual Meet Championships and were 2nd in the NCAA championships.
