TRAVERSE CITY — Due to icy conditions, several teams didn’t show up for the Haughn/Sonneman Classic at Traverse City Central.

Other first-place finishers included James Westenbarger (119), Hunter Luhrs (125), Drake Wables (135) and Justice Korson (145).

Traverse City West sent several wrestlers from its B team to the tournament, led by Austin Cochrane, who was 2-0 and the champ at 130 pounds. Drew Danzer was second at 145 pounds and Joseph Leal took third at 119.

Runners-up for Central included Malachi Farmer (125), David Mattson (130), Brandon Soloman (152), Bob Switzer (160), Mitch Villagomez (171), Will Irish (189), Austin Weir (215) and Sean Monnier (285).
