Buchanan's Hutchison, Watervliet's Thumm win state wrestling titles

Two Southwest Michigan wrestlers captured individual state championships on Saturday at the Palace in Auburn Hills.

Congratulations to Buchanan's Gage Hutchison and Watervliet's Brock Thumm, who were among 56 wrestlers to win gold at the MHSAA wrestling finals.

Hutchison, a junior, pinned Comstock Park senior Tyler Gruszka in just one minute and three seconds to win the Division 3 State Championship at 215 pounds. Hutchison finishes his year with a remarkable record of 57-0.

Thumm, a sophomore, was in a much tougher battle, edging Marlette senior Matt Mata 10-9 to win gold at 125 pounds in Division 4. It was the first loss of the season for Mata. Thumm finishes his state championship campaign at 47-5.
