The #4 ranked John Glenn Rockets punched their ticket to the state wrestling finals!! 

The mighty rockets defeated Livonia Franklin in the semi-final before taking on state powerhouse Temperance Bedford for all the glory. The rockets were in a battle that went to the very last match! In the end, JG came home victorious with a tight 31-29 victory!

Scoring BIG pinpoints for JG was Josh Mars, Ty Cowen, and Caleb Meekins.Grady Bowen had a thrilling overtime victory and Brenten Polk and Kyle Borthwell did what they do best....WIN! Our big man Antoine Hines was a hero once again winning a GREAT match by 1 point.

Ethan Collins scored a late reversal to take away bonus points with only 5 seconds on the clock and Charlie Kersten, Hayden Rhoades, and Justin Morrison wrestled their hearts out against some of the states best, scoring several late points to charge up the team. And finally, Sadiq Sheikhmeeri sealed the victory fighting off his back and dominated his opponent for the last minute of the match to finish the victory for John Glenn! 

The team will battle for a state title next weekend in Kalamazoo at Wings Stadium!
