Gonzalezs’ head to finals

AUBURN HILLS – The Gonzalez brothers (Cole and Mat) will extend their wrestling season with a trip to the Michigan High School Athlete Association wrestling finals in Auburn Hills on Feb. 28.

Mat captured a third place finish at the Division 4 regionals Saturday in Rogers City.

Knocked off in the second round by Trenton Doughty of Newberry, Mat emerged from the loser’s bracket, sealing his trip to the finals with a victory over Jess Levier of Smeridan. A senior, Mat finished the regular season with a 34-4 record.

Cole’s trip to the finals took a similar course. Following a win over Devon Posey, the younger Gonzalez was beaten by a technical fall by Mark Workman of Hesperia. Win or go home, Cole beat Harley Foust of Mio in a 7-0 decision, and then suffered a loss to Morgan Robins of Onaway in an 8-4 decision.

Zach Lindemuth, Zavier Gonzalez and Cheyene Shaver also participated at regionals but will not be advancing.
