Wrestling: Westland's Jakob Hurley earns 100th career win
Jakob Hurley became the second Westland wrestler in the last month to reach 100 career wins with a victory Feb. 4 at home.
Hurley, a junior, beat Dresden Tri-Valley's Jason Patterson 8-2 at 160 pounds to reach the milestone.
“It’s a great milestone,” Hurley said. “I’m sure every wrestler in their high school career dreams of getting 100 wins. I put a lot of hard work into it, but we’re not stopping here. The next win goal is 150.”
Hurley is 24-3 on the season and 100-16 for his career.
Westland lost to Tri-Valley 57-14 and Sparta Highland 36-24.
Hurley and Palmer both qualified for the Division I state tournament last season, but the event was canceled because of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
