Utica Wrestlers played hard and had fun in the season this year. The team finishes out their season with a score of 13-15. On Feb. 12, the team went to the M.A.C white championship, resulting in both junior Bradley Mayse and senior Miles Curtis moving on to Regionals.

Coach Clinton Davis provides his input on the overall 2021-2022 season.

“The season went well,” Davis said. “Our M.A.C. white conference is a competitive one and we are coming off of back to back championship seasons and even though we didn’t get the championship this season, we have a young team and competed well this year. We will be looking to be stronger next season.”

On February 20, junior Alexandria Sparks places fourth at the girls regional meet, allowing her to move on to the states meet.

On March 5, Sparks finishes 7th overall at Ford Field after moving on to the medal rounds from the day before. She finishes her season as an All State MHSAA female wrestler.

“Wrestling season is always a good time,” Sparks said. “It’s fulfilling in getting better and exciting to compete. We competed well as a team this year and we’re all excited for next year’s season. Wrestling is incredibly fulfilling. Even though it is a team sport, when you are on the mat, it is completely individual. If you lose there is nobody to blame but yourself. The sport is an expression of strength, technique, and dedication. Any accolades are a direct representation of how hard a person fights- which is admirable.”
