STORY BY JONNY ZAWACKI Special to The Alpena News

ALPENA, MI - The Alpena High wrestling team took to the mat on Wednesday, hosting their annual Wildcat Quad Meet as Alpena welcomed Onaway, Gaylord and Saginaw Heritage.

The Wildcats performed well with Mason Bray (171) once again highlighting the day and continuing his stellar season.

Bray was victorious in his lone match of the night and improved to 34-1 on the season. The Alpena senior also earned win number 84 for his career.

“It’s been a special year for Mason (Bray) and he’s put in so much work. It’s nice to see his hard work paying off,” Alpena coach Matt Kowalski said. “He’s improved so much this year and he’s gone from being competitive in every match, to dominating every match. He’s had a special year.”

Along with Bray, Eldon Humphrey and Joseph McEwen each picked up wins.

Alpena fell to Onaway 23-17 as the Cardinals prevailed in the final match.

The Wildcats tied Saginaw Heritage 24-24 after McEwen earned a pinfall victory to even the score and provide Alpena with a good feeling in their final home meet of the year.

Next up for the Wildcat grapplers will be the Northern Michigan Championship held in Gaylord on Saturday, beginning at 9 a.m.
