Daylin Wittig off to 17-1 start for Warrior wrestling

Daylin Wittig

REMUS — He’s a sophomore, but Daylin Wittig has been getting the job done for Chippewa Hills at the 112-pound class.

One of Wittig’s top highlights this season was going 4-0 at the home Joe Loren Memorial Invitational.

Last year, he lost in the blood round of regionals at 103.

“Everyone’s been bumping up so (112) is not too crazy,” he said.

After Wittig’s first 18 matches, he was 17-1.

“I was hoping to not get taken down,” he said, adding the key for his success has been, “working hard in practice.”

Wittig’s top work has been very effective, but he wants to get better on his neutral stuff.

He wants to go to the state meet and place as high as possible.

“The kid (from Ogemaw Heights) who knocked me out of (the regional last year) I beat in overtime already,” Wittig said. “He was a state qualifier in Division so I wasn’t too mad about it.”

Chippewa Hills will be at the Forest Hills Central Invitational on Saturday.

“We have a lot of good kids,” Wittig said.
