After the wrestling team wrapped up its first league title in recent years, five wrestlers finished first for their weight classes in league individual tournaments.Â
Ben Kogan â11, Gavin Ross â09, Spencer Friedman â09, Richard Leuchter â08, and Daniel Meer â08 all scored the top spot while Hank Murr â09 and Evan Ryan â09 finished second.Â Tarek Tohme â08 finished third in the competition.
âWeâve known for years that our wrestlers are better individually,â Meer said.Â âWhat felt the best this year is that we were finally acknowledged for our success and have earned the respect of many who are not intimately acquainted with our team.â
Two weeks after league individuals were CIF individuals, 32-man double elimination brackets, in which the top five move on to Masters.
Ross, Friedman and Leuchter all made Masters and Meer finished sixth in CIF due to an ankle injury.
In Masters, all the Wolverine wrestlers were ousted on the second day.
