The Trojans took 9 wrestlers to Grand Rapids Kenowa Hills for an individual wrestling tournament on Saturday Jan. 21.
There were 14 teams competing, with only 9 wrestlers East Lansing placed 10th out of 14. Placing for the Trojans were:
160 – Dre Stanford-Walker placing 6th, Dre wrestled very tough today and for a 1st year wrestler I think he did a great job says coach Rinehart.
171 – Noah Inglesby placing 5th. Noah lost a hard fought match in the quarter finals losing in overtime. Noah will make a deep run into the post season he has lost a couple of close matches to some wrestlers ranked in the state.
171 – Roy Crawford placing 3rd, Roy lost by 2 points in the semi-finals to the 6th ranked wrest;er in the state at his weight class. Roy and Noah will both enter the post season at 171 pounds. I am very excited for both of these guys and the potential they have to make it to the palace.
285 – Korey Munchbach placing 6th, this was Korey’s first varsity tournament on the season, Korey is making huge improvements with his wrestling we as the coaching staff are very excited for Korey’s future in wrestling.
East Lansing will have senior night on Wednesday January 25, they will wrestle Lansing Eastern.
