FHS wrestlers represent well at state meet
Three Frankenmuth varsity wrestlers advanced to the MHSAA Division 3 Individual State Finals, held at The Palace of Auburn Hills earlier this month.
Chandler White took eighth place in the 119-pound weight class, competing through a stacked chart which included a pair of defending state champions.
White lost the opener match to Corunna’s Tristan Serbus with a fall at 1:34. He fell into the consolation round and defeated Ogemaw Height’s Jonny Dubke with a 10-5 decision. Next, he defeated Chippewa Hills’ wrestler Kaden Ellis in a 7-6 decision. His final match was a loss to Whitehall’s Corey Robinson, 12-1.
White finished with a 47-15 overall record at 119 pounds this season.
Anthony Schurr competed in the 189-pound weight category. Schurr lost his opening match to Howard City’s Jarrod Tague, 11-0. Next, he lost to Grayling’s Michael Phipps, 8-0.
Schurr finished his senior season at 33-13 overall.
Kris Roche qualified for the state finals at 145 pounds, however, he was unable to wrestle as he was over weight in his class.
𠇊ll in all, a good showing for Frankenmuth wrestling and we look forward to having more than three individuals participate in the finals next year,” FHS Head Coach Bob Slavik said.
Slavik, Assistant Coach Mike Hogan and the three wrestlers wish to thank the Cobbler’s Bench, Poblano’s Mexican Grill & Cantina and Sullivan’s Black Forest Brew Haus & Grill for their donations, allowing them to stay in a suite at The Palace all three days of the competition.
