For No. 10 St. Johns Defends Michigan State Team Title ? Tournament Division Results and many other topics visit HSWrestling.net

It didn?t have the drama of last season, but it had twice the dominance.

The St. Johns (No. 10 in the Nation) wrestling team finished off a perfect season in style Saturday, easily winning the Division 2 state championship ? its second crown in two seasons.

After tension-packed one-point victories in both the semifinals and finals last season, the Redwings made it look simple this time round. They routed Lowell 48-10 in the semifinals, then cruised past Greenville 54-18 in the final.

St. Johns ends the season with a 32-0 record.

Ballard said the team has been preparing for the state final since the beginning of the season, facing the top teams in all divisions.

?We tried to schedule the toughest competition we have in the state, we?ve seen every one of these teams (that are) in the finals somewhere this year, either in dual meets or at individual tournaments, so we?ve wrestled every team in the building,? he said.
