WRESTLING: Huron finishes third at Sheriff's tourney

Huron and Flat Rock each completed one final test over the holiday break before jumping back into Huron League play by competing in the Monroe County Sheriff’s Invitational in Monroe on Saturday.

Bedford placed first in the team standings with 283 points followed by Dundee (274.5) and Huron (167.5).

Huron crowned a pair of champions as Joe Ferguson placed first at 130 pounds and Logan Ritchie took first at 160.

Judah Caballero finished second at 103, heavyweight Mike Long took third and Aaron Escobar finished fourth at 140 pounds.

Four Chiefs won their fifth-place matches, including Brandon Brooks (112), Eli Caballero (119) and Deion Copley (215).

Nathan Hayslip finished sixth at 189 for Huron.

“We probably placed where we should have placed,” Huron Coach Jake Shulaw said. “There are some things that we really need to get over and mistakes that we need to work on if we’re going to get deep to the team states.”

Flat Rock finished 10th with 63 points and was led by Dakotah Dockter’s third-place finish at 215.

The Rams had a pair of fifth-place finishers in Brandon Fisher (130) and Jason Ingram (135) and Jake Lambrix took sixth at heavyweight.

The Chiefs and Rams will travel to Monroe St. Mary Catholic Central today for a Huron League quad. Huron will face Flat Rock and host SMCC. Flat Rock’s second opponent will be Monroe Jefferson.

Huron will travel to the Warren Lincoln Duals on Saturday while Flat Rock aims to defend its title as returning champions at the Lutheran Westland Tournament that same day.

Carlson Coach Lance Hassell said the Sheriff’s was the toughest tournament his team has been to in a long time, one than featured several state champions, state placers and state qualifiers.

“It was kind of a reality check for some of our kids that they need to step it up a few notches to compete at the level they are striving to be,” Hassell said.

Carlson had seven wrestlers place.

Paul Sawicki (145) led the way with his second place finish.

Mason Brott (112) and Zach Underwood (215) each finished fourth, Jake Mydloski (160) finished fifth, and Nathan Skuratovich (103), Maxwell Underwood (152) and Doug Bunea (171) finished sixth.

“It’s never fun to see my wrestlers lose, but I think it will be a good thing in the long run,” Hassell said. “Our kids seemed really motivated and ready to take the proper steps to excel after this tournament.”
