Detroit Catholic Central's Robert Coe Wins State Wrestling Title
Four Catholic Central wrestlers win state crowns after winning team title last week.
Detroit Catholic Central's Robert Coe came home with a Michigan High School Athletic Association individual wrestling state championship Saturday after defeating Parker Tillman from Grand Rapids Forest Hills Central in the 285-pound final.
Coe won 3-0 after earning an escape and takedown in the final minute of the third period at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
"There is no way I can describe it," Coe said. "It's not as good as winning tema states last week, but it's one of the best feelings in the world."
Coe ends the year with a 45-4 record and adds the Division 1 individual championship to the team title Detroit Catholic Central won last week in Battle Creek.
Coe pinned two opponents and then beat Holland West Ottawa's Miguel Correa 4-2 in the semifinals to get to the championship.
Ken Bade (135), Malik Amine (150) and Drew Garcia (171) also won state titles.
