It was senior night Wednesday at Whitehall, and the host Vikings’ Division 2 second-ranked wrestling team put on a show with a pair of dominating wins in a West Michigan Conference quad.

Whitehall senior Max Brown picked up the 150th win of his career on the night,. The 2021 state champion who wrestles at 145 pounds now sports an eye-popping all-time record of 151-13.

CatchMark SportsNet livestreamed the quad on its YouTube channel. You can watch a replay, including the senior night ceremony, here as Division 3 10th-ranked Hart, Montague and Mason County Central also competed:

Below is a roundup of results and highlights from the conference Jan. 19. Whitehall and Montague did not compete against each other, as they squared off last week at Oakridge.

WHITEHALL

Whitehall capped another unbeaten regular season in the West Michigan Conference with a pair of lopsided victories Wednesday night.

The Vikings opened with a 66-7 victory over Mason County Central and followed with a 60-12 win over Division 3 10th-ranked Hart.

In addition to Brown’s milestone, perhaps the highlight of the night was senior Ira Jenkins’ matchup with fellow unbeaten Andrew Quinn of Mason County Central in the 285-pound weight class. Jenkins added to his gaudy totals with another first-period pin requiring just 1 minute, 9 seconds. Jenkins is now 158-11 in his career with 127 pins.

Joining Brown and Jenkins as double-winners for Whitehall on the night were Nolan Taranko, Caden Varela, Riley Buys, Aiden Weiler, Wyatt Jenkins, Nick Blanchard and Shane Cook.

HART

Hart secured second place in the West Michigan Conference with a split in Wednesday’s quad at Whitehall. The Pirates defeated Montague (46-29) and lost to Whitehall (59-12).

Bryce Jorissen, Mason Cantu and Leo Guadarrama were double-winners for Hart.

MONTAGUE

Montague split a pair of matches in Wednesday’s West Michigan Conference quad at Whitehall. The Wildcats defeated Mason County Central (54-28) and lost to Hart (46-29).

MASON COUNTY CENTRAL

Mason County Central dropped a pair of West Michigan Conference matches in Wednesday’s quad at Whitehall. The Spartans lost to Whitehall (66-7) and Montague (54-28).

Zane McCabe and Hunter Sanford were double-winners for MCC.

RAVENNA

Ravenna split a pair of matches in a West Michigan Conference tri-meet at Shelby.

The Bulldogs defeated Oakridge (36-21) and fell to Shelby (51-28).
