Mancelona Captures Division 4 District Championship

FRANKFORT – The Mancelona wrestling program captured a Division 4 district championship with 54-30 victory over Traverse City St. Francis on Thursday.

Earlier in the evening, Mancelona handed tournament host Frankfort a 54-24 loss while St. Francis downed Forest Area 54-6.

“I tell my guys to train hard, I tell them to run hard, and I tell them don’t give up and have a lot of heart,” Mancelona coach Joe Johnston said. “I would like to see, we have fourteen guys left, I’d like to see at least half of them get to the state championship as far as individuals this year.”

Mancelona will now face Hart in a regional semifinal on Wednesday. The winner will face either Whittemore-Prescott or Roscommon a regional title.
