With the wrestling season over, Coach Jeff Smith said, “We have room for improvement, but everyone did good as a team.” Although Edwardsburg was one of the wrestling team’s toughest opponents, they also believe they need to work hard to beat Mattawan. According to Smith, his strongest wrestlers this past season were seniors Tyler Moore and Chris Morrill, along with freshman Lucas Jenkins.

On February 18, Moore and Morrill excelled to D2 State Finals after the MHSAA Regional Championship, with Moore winning first place and Morrill winning second place. Moore said, “It felt good. I was pretty proud of myself.” March 2-3, the duo went to Ford Field to compete against some of the best wrestlers in Division Two. The outcome was Moore winning third place and Morrill winning fourth place. Morrill said, “I’m pretty happy, but I would have been happier winning a state title. Being able to rub that in my older brother’s face, who was a state runner-up when he was in high school, would’ve been a nice feeling.” Moore and Morrill will be ending their high school wrestling career with over 150 wins each.

“I expect to fill the lineup and be competitive. I also expect to be team district champions,” said Smith of next year’s team expectations.
