The Holland High wrestling team had 2 of their wrestlers punch their tickets to the state finals by placing at individual regional today.
Placing for Holland:
John Gordon – Regional Champion
Michael Gibson – 4th Place
These two wrestlers will be wrestling this Friday at the Van Andel Arena in a 16 man bracket for an individual state championship.
As a coach it is never easy watching a senior wrestle their last match with the H on their chest, but this year seems to sting a little extra for the coaches. I believe it is because we are losing a total of 9 seniors, and also because of the way these seniors lead our team through a wrestling season during a pandemic. To keep it simple – these seniors will be missed!
The prestigious 100 win club would like to welcome John Gordon. John won his first match today at Individual Regionals to get his 100th win. He then won his second win to qualify for the state finals, and then he finished a great day by winning the regional championship. The Holland Familia is extremely proud of John. Congrats on the milestone victory!
