MUSKEGON, Mich. — The Whitehall wrestling team beat Reeths-Puffer to win a division two wrestling team district on Wednesday.

"I thought the guys wrestled really well," Whitehall co-head coach Collin Zeerip said. "They came out and dominated and overall just a great team effort. They wrestled super hard and just across the board everybody wrestled super well."
