100 and 200 backstroke. He also swam
on the victorious 400 medley relay team.

South Lyon junior Josh Haron com-
peted in the individual Division 1 high
school wrestling finals in the heavy-
weight class. The 235-pound Haron was
outweighed by as much as 40 pounds,
and lost both matches. His performance
was a strong improvement from his pre-
vious two varsity wrestling campaigns.
He won just five matches as a freshman
and was under .500 as a sophomore.
This year, he finished 39-14. He fin-
ished fourth in his district to qualify for
the individual regional, then qualified
for the state meet with another fourth-
place finish in the regional. He also
earned three varsity letters in football as
a starting tight end/defensive end. This
spring, he plans to try lacrosse.

the varsity and JV level in wrestling.
Freshman Jordan Schwartz wrestled at
119 pounds for Seaholm's JV.

straight state ice hockey championship
recently. A goalie for the

he played about half his

netminder for the state
champion Bloomfield Hills Team USA
