Home ? Freddie Rodriquez (No. 7 @ 119) and Taylor Massa (No. 2 @ 160) Gunning For Third Titles

Juniors Freddie Rodriguez (No.7 @ 119) of Grand Ledge and Taylor Massa (No.2 @ 160) of St. Johns are two of just four wrestlers statewide that are gunning for a third wrestling state championship.

Massa (Division 2, 160 pounds) won on pin in 1:13 over Derrion Matthews of Sturgis and Rodriguez (D1, 119) won on a technical fall at 2:37 over Anthony Hang of East Kentwood.

Massa hasn?t lost a match in high school competition, climbing to 183 career wins after Thurs- day?s first round of the 3-day finals at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

?Yeah, there?s a bigger target on my back each year,? Massa said. ?But I truly just try to think about it one match at a time. Because if you think about trying to be undefeated the whole time, that?s just huge; that?s so much pressure.
