Boys Varsity Wrestling
Saturday February 16, 2019 two West Catholic Wrestlers participated in the Individual Regional Tournament held at Belding High School. Each weight class brought together the top 8 wrestlers in the districts to determine who will travel to the State Finals in two weeks.
Freshman, Thomas Zielinski wrestled hard in his 103# weight class but was defeated by Whitehall and Lakewood, both of which went on to earn a seat at the state tournament.
Junior, Jake Bozek went 3-1 for the day fighting hard on all four matches, one of which went into overtime. Jake was able to secure the take down earning the points needed to win the match. In the finals round Jake was matched against the same opponent. Jake took charge of the match & left no doubt in this match with a solid 8-1 victory!
Jake is the first WC wrestler to travel to the state tournament in 5 years! Jake will travel to Ford Field in Detroit on March 1st to compete in the two day competition. Good Luck Jake! GO WEST!
