In Division 1, District 5 at Westland John Glenn, the Downriver area was represented by Lincoln Park, Southgate Anderson, Woodhaven and Wyandotte Roosevelt.

A total of 18 local grapplers finished in the top four, which qualified them for regionals next Saturday at Saline. Woodhaven led the way with eight qualifiers, including a pair of champions and four runners up.

In the 130-pound weight class, the Warriors’ Xavier Graham took down his teammate Mason Grasso in the first-place match by a 5-1 decision. Then at 145, teammate Joseph Muzzin pinned John Glenn's John Siemasz to claim the title. In that same class, Josh Watters of the Warriors finished in fourth place. He fell to Belleville's Zachary Buhro in the consolation match by a 15-6 Major Decision.

Also from Woodhaven, Jacob Emery (135), Hunter Grasso (160) Josh Dodd (189) all reached the finals and finished runner up and Kyle Emery (140) was fourth.

Southgate Anderson was next on the totem pole of area competitors, as five of its wrestlers earned a ticket to regionals.

The Titans were led by Donte Rivera-Garcia, who in the 125 class took down Saline's Daniel Poupore by a 3-1 decision in sudden-death overtime for first-place honors.

The Titans also had two wrestlers finish runner up and two place third.

Alec Balogh (112) and Marc Rodriguez (152) made it to the championship bout before losing, while Logan Palshan (119) and Bradley Janes picked up victories in their third-place matches.

Wyandotte Roosevelt will have three representatives in Saline next Saturday.

Hiram Robinson (171) finished in second place after being pinned in the championship tilt. Colton Thompson (140) finished in third, as he defeated Woodhaven's Kyle Emery, and Jake Campbell (103) finished fourth.
