The middle school wrestling team ventured to Lakeview this past Saturday to compete in its final competition of the year that featured all of the schools in both the CSAA Silver and Gold. The team came away with a solid performance, and several wrestlers took home medals from the tourney. Here is a breakdown of the wrestlers that placed:
1st: Gabe Rusnell
2nd: Payton Oliver, Derek Rodenburg, Brayden Armstrong, Josh Anderson, Tyler Brummel, Luke Bockheim
3rd: Zane Kik, Manny Hernandez, Carson Pieper, Kyle Monterusso, Pedro Diaz-Charles
4th: Logan Goguen, Leto Pendleton
Overall, the team had a very productive season. It gained a lot of confidence and continued to improve throughout the season. However, any middle school wrestler that would like to continue wrestling throughout the winter months is invited to the Kent City Young Wrestling practices. It is free of charge and runs from 6:00 - 7:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Also, Coach Kik is willing to take wrestlers to Sunday Mywa tournaments as well. Contact him for more information.
