By Jeff Steers JTV Sports In big wrestling matches, it always seems to come down to who can score bonus points and who can eliminate them. That is what it came down to in the Michigan High School Athletic Association Division 4 state team wrestling semifinal. Hudson High School scored two pins and a void in a 31-29 win over Manchester on Saturday at Wings Events Center in Kalamazoo. The Flying Dutchmen end the season with a 36-3 record. “I told our kids it always comes down to one or two points,” Manchester Coach Steve Vlcek said. “It comes down to bonus points … not giving them up and earning some.” Adam Pringle got Manchester off to a great start with a 6-4 overtime win at 140 pounds. After a Hudson pin, Jacob Kurgin of Manchester earned a 7-0 win to tie the match at 6-all. Jacob Snowden of Manchester gave the Flying Dutchmen a 9-6 lead with a 4-0 win at 160 pounds. Two wins by Hudson gave the Tigers a 15-9 lead in a low-scoring contest.…

By Jeff Steers JTV Sports It was too long ago that winning 10 games in girls’ basketball was a huge goal for the Western High School varsity basketball team. Senior Natalie Shellberg remembers those days. She is enjoying the feeling of winning an Interstate-8 Conference basketball title and being 18-2 a little bit better. Shellberg and a host of players shut Battle Creek Harper Creek down in the second half to earn a 51-35 win. Both teams were 17-2 overall and 12-1 in the I-8 heading into the showdown at WHS on Friday night. “Our defense stepped up and our offense ran the floor well in the second half,” Shellberg said. “It was a great team effort and a big change for the program.” Shellberg was a freshman on a team that set a goal of winning one-third of its games three years ago. The Panthers moved up to having a winning record and finally winning its first conference title in 14 seasons this year. “Our program has come such a long…
