The 19th ranked Jayhawks won the team championship of the MCCAA Conference. To do so, they had to out wrestle two teams that were ranked ahead of them in the national rankings, Mott coming in at 18th and Henry Ford at 15th. On their path to the team championship, they also crowned 7 champions. “This squad is really coming together and peaking at the right time,” said Coach Brunger. “Last year we lost the conference for the first time since its reinstatement, it was definitely a goal to get that title back home here in Muskegon.”
Winning individual championships were Alex Cantu (Orchard View) at 133, Kael Bunce (Stockbridge) at 149, Alec Sampson (Wilmington, NC) at 157, Julian Jimenez (Holland West Ottawa) at 165, Bronsen Jewell (Grand Haven) at 184, Kayleb Venema (Whitehall) at 197 and Allen Powers (Whitehall) at 285. Finishing 2nd was Glen Kuharevicz (Muskegon Catholic Central) at 174. Richard Ostrander (Chippewa Hills) 125, and Jamison Ward (Carson City Crystal) at 141 both finished third. Kael Bunce was also named Freshman of the year for the conference and Coach Brunger was named coach of the year.
