IRA, Mich. - At home Saturday, February 13th, the Anchor Bay Tars began their individual state wrestling championship journey.
The Tars entered fourteen wrestlers in the event held at home. After a tough district loss to Dakota, the boys picked up the pieces and proceeded to make their stake for a trip to Individual States at the Palace of Auburn Hills in 3 weeks.
Placing for the Tars 103 Anderson Strunk (4th), 112 Jack Medley (1st), 119 Michael Romanoski (3rd), 125 Nolan Romanoski (1st), 130 Matthew Dufty (2nd), 135 Jeffery Andrews (1st), 145 Luke Brazil (2nd), 171 Patrick Dufty (3rd), 189 Trevor Yank (1st), and 285 Reno Giacalone (3rd).
The tars placed one more Regional Qualifier than last year. Coach Biland was happy with the performance but knows there's work to be done if the wrestlers are to make the state meet.
Next up for the AB wrestlers is the Regional Tourney at Hartland H.S. this Saturday, February 26th.
