REED CITY \u2014 The transition to high school spring sports continues with some teams finishing up with awards banquets and others looking ahead to the 2017-18 winter campaign. Reed City had a memorable season, featuring the achievements of Ryan Simmons and Brett Walker, who qualified for the wrestling regionals as the main highlight. Simmons, a sophomore at 112, entered the postseason with a 36-14 record. He had finished third at districts and was hoping to advance to the state finals. He fell short of the goal, but will pursue it next season. \u201cIt\u2019s better than I did last year,\u201d he said of his district accomplishment. \u201cI wanted to take first. That was my main goal. Third place is decent. I don\u2019t get the first-place guy at regional, but I don\u2019t get the worst. It\u2019s not the best, but it\u2019s not the worst.\u201d He was pleased with how successful his strategy worked in his match for third place. Simmons was focusing on his hand fighting and his bottom position in his late-season matches. \u201cI want to be in a better position to take him down,\u201d he said. \u201cI just need to wrestle the way I normally do. I\u2019ll be relaxed.\u201d Walker placed fourth as a junior. It was his first time he placed in districts. \u201cI was happy, I was very excited,\u201d he said. \u201cI could have gotten third. In the match for third, I could have done better. I got pinned.\u201d It was Walker\u2019s No. 1 thrill for the season. He didn\u2019t place out of regionals either, but set that as a goal for next season.
