Freshman Jack Samuels Claims All State Honors – Captures 7th place
The Eagles qualified 6 wrestlers to compete at the Individual State Wrestling Finals held at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The wrestlers qualifying this year were:
#103 Jack Samuels – Freshman
#103 Kameron Kempker – Sophomore
#130 Austin Fine – Senior
#140 Anthony Snead – Senior
#160 Brenden DeVries – Senior
#285 Lane Potter – Junior
This year’s individual tournament had one of the deepest pools of talent in recent memory. Jack Samuels wrestled well on his way to earning a spot on the podium. He faced some stiff competition along the way. His 7th place finish was well deserved. The program looks forward to seeing what he can do next year!
The remaining wrestlers lost very close, hard fought decisions by the slimmest of margins. Next year Kameron Kempker and Lane Potter will look to build upon this year’s successful seasons and return to The Palace to claim their spot on the podium.
The wrestling program will miss this year’s senior class! For the 3 seniors that made the trip to the State Finals, it was an experience they will cherish as it capped a remarkable senior season!
