It was billed as one of the best wrestling tournaments of the regular season and the results did not disappoint as two of the state’s and nation’s premier high school team’s met in the finals of the 42nd Annual Tim Horn’s Windmill City Wrestling Classic in Holland.
St. Johns built an early lead but Catholic Central stormed back late to take the lead and in the final match of the evening Catholic Central’s Myles Amine gave up only three points in a loss to Zac Hall of St. Johns to hold on to the victory.
“Our guys really came together,” Detroit Catholic Central coach Mitch Hancock said. “St. Johns has an incredible team. They have seven Division 1 people in their lineup. They are loaded with talent but we are loaded with heart. Our guys do whatever it takes to win. I can’t say enough about Myles, he put aside his individual goals for the goals of the team. He put the team ahead of himself and did a great job in that final match.”
Catholic Central turned in a dominant performance at the tournament as it defeated East Kentwood (74-6), Allegan, the No. 4-ranked team in Division 2 (54-16) and Hartland, the No. 4-ranked team in Division 1 (55-15) in the semifinals.
