facing there," Wilson said. "As a
coach, you can preach all you
want, but until a kid has a chance
to see the three-ring circus called
a state meet, he doesn't know
what he's up against."
Lewin, a junior, went 1-2 in
Battle Creek, giving him a 36-14
record for the season. His first
state meet match was a 3-2 loss
to Flint Northern's Eugene Cal-
loway, who eventually finished
After defeating Tom Zdun of
Jenison 3-1 in overtime, Lewin
was sidelined by Jason Ohrt of
Fraser, who pinned him in 2:44.
Lewin led 6-2 at the time. Ohrt
went on to place fifth.
"Jeremy wrestled very well,"
Wilson said. "I predict he'll get
back to the state meet next year
and be an All-Stater. What we've
got to do in the off-season is work
on his strength so it will be equiv-
alent to his speed."
Simon went 0-2 in the state
meet and finished 33-16. The
sophomore took on Matt Michal-
ski of Farmington, ranked No. 1
in the state at 100 pounds, in his
first match and Michalski beat
him 7-0. Brandon Bandlow of Bay
City Western ousted Simon from
the meet by defeating him 11-1.
Wilson wants to see Simon
wrestle at 106 pounds next sea-
son. If he does, the coach believes
Simon will have a good shot at
returning to Battle Creek.

The burly 6-foot-8 sophomore
center, whose nickname is "Big
Dog," averaged nearly 10 points
and 10 rebounds a game for
Western, which went 10-13 and
played for a Class A district
championship after finishing 0-
21 the previous year.
Western had won four straight
— including two district games
for the first time in school histo-
ry — before it dropped a 60-57

Earlier this season, Central beat
Western by 25 points.
In Western's 47-45 win over
Milford in a district opener on
March 6, Oseff scored seven
points including a key three-point
play with 1:43 remaining. Oseff
had a dozen points in Western's
59-54 triumph over Waterford
Kettering on March 8 in a district
"Hopefully, we'll take it up an-
other notch next year," Oseff said.
"We should get some help from
our junior varsity team, which
had a 13-4 record.
"I'm looking forward to next
year. We lost six seniors, so I'm
going to try to provide some lead-
ership. And I'm going to work
hard in the off-season so I can be-
come our go-to guy on offense."
This spring, Oseff will be
throwing the shotput and discus

year at the helm.

son. I think our program is head-
ed in the right direction," Gold
