Swiderski and Davis shine at NCAA Championships

Dundee graduates Casey Swiderski and Braeden Davis both had standout performances at the NCAA Wrestling Championships over the weekend. Swiderski achieved All-American status for Iowa State by placing seventh in the 149-pound weight class, while Davis helped Penn State secure the national championship title.

Penn State dominated the tournament, scoring 155.5 points and finishing well ahead of the runner-up Michigan with 71 points. Iowa State also had a strong showing, coming in fifth with 64.5 points. Swiderski won his first two matches narrowly before being defeated by the top-seed in the quarterfinals. He then bounced back to secure a seventh-place finish with a convincing victory. Davis, at 125 pounds, just missed out on becoming an All-American after being eliminated in the blood round.

Dundee’s Stoney Buell represented Purdue at 165 pounds in the national finals but came up short against tough competition.

In college softball action, Monroe graduate Ellie Sieler and her Michigan team swept Whiteford graduate Ally VanBrandt and Indiana in a three-game series. Sieler had a strong performance at the plate, while VanBrandt contributed to Indiana’s offense.

On the high school soccer front, Flat Rock secured a 1-0 victory over Wyandotte Roosevelt with Isabella Thomas scoring the lone goal off an assist from Megan Woelkers and goalkeeper Keola Botts recording a shutout.

In freshman baseball action, Bedford staged a comeback to defeat Toledo St. John 12-4 in their season opener
