Wrestling Finishes Third at Kraai Invite

By Brandon Ritter

HAMILTON, Mich. РThe Hamilton Hawkeyes wrestling team took 3rd on Saturday in the Kraai Invitational at Zeeland West facing Zeeland East, Hart, Wayland, Hopkins, and also West Ottawa. West Ottawa was the only team that tripped up the Hawkeyes losing by a score of 51 to 23.

Hawkeye wrestlers Seth Buresh, Trevor Blood, and Jordan Dams went 4-0 on Saturday. The team lost a lot of great senior wrestlers from last year and have limited upperclassman on their team, so the team needs some of these younger guys to step-up like this.

Senior wrestler Devin Christian was very pleased with the freshman and sophomores. He said they all did better than expected and shocked the team giving them a lot of confidence for the season. The Hamilton wrestlers are at Allendale this Wednesday starting at 5:30.
