KALAMAZOO — Upsets were few and far between at the team wrestling state finals on Saturday afternoon at Wings Event Center.

Each of the four divisions’ No. 1 seeds took home titles.

Defending Division 1 champ Davison had the closest challenge in a 29-21 victory over Novi Detroit Catholic Central. The Shamrocks could have won if they scored a pin in the final match, but Davison junior Josh Barr got a 4-3 decision over Manny Rojas, late in the 171-pound match, to seal the team victory. Both Barr and Rojas are two-time defending individual state champions.
