It was a great day of competition in East Lansing on Saturday.  In the end, Team Bad Boys rolled to a Midwest Grand Challenge title after knocking off Ares WC Red, 37-21, in a dual that featured seventeen all-state wrestlers.

Some great individual matches took place as well.  In the championship dual, D1 and D2 171-pound state champs went at it as Layne Malczewski upended Ryan Ringler, 8-4.  Also in that dual a clash of D1 and D2 135-pound state runner-ups provided a great match.  Avry Mutschler picked up a takedown on Sergio Borg that proved to be the difference in a 3-1 match.

Elsewhere, D3 189 state champ Ethan Weatherspoon and D3 171 state champ Owen Guilford got to match up, and Weatherspoon held on to an 8-6 victory in a great match.
