The Big Reds sent two to Regionals at Tecumseh. Alex Scully (160) Wrestled really tough. Alex wrestled only 2 years and came very close to making it to state. With last second reversals to lose both matches. Ben Fick (171) finished in third place to qualify for state. He lost his first match 6-3. He battled back and beat an Orchard Lake Saint Mary’s kid 7-3. He then beat an Allen Park kid… in the blood round by a Major Decision 13-2. In the Consolation finals he beat a Gibraltar Carlson kid 5-3. Ben has wrestled for 7 years and finally made it to state. Ben won 32 matches as a freshman. He won about 50% of his matches as a sophomore and then ran into injuries his Junior year. He probably could have been a state qualifier last year but was only able to wrestle 8 matches. We all were pulling for him to make it. He is a kid that works his butt off every day in practice. A natural leader on and off the mat. He also carries a 4.2 grade point average. We are all very proud and hopefully his success continues at state.
