WHITEHALL, Mich. -- Allendale wrestling coach Duane Watson won his 600th dual when the Falcons beat Grandville Saturday at the Whitehall Invitational.

"I want to keep coaching, and I want to keep coming back because of parents and families that raise kids like this." Watson said. "They are always giving back. If a team needs shoes and we find out about it, these boys wanna give. It's just a pleasure for me to keep coaching kids who parents have instilled those kind of values. It's wonderful."

He becomes just the 15th coach in state history to reach 600 wins.
