Prep Sports Roundup: West's Priante wins district title

GRAND HAVEN — Traverse City West wrestler Vincent Priante won an individual district title and qualified for next Saturday’s regional round when he captured the 103-pound crown in action at Grand Haven.

Priante went 3-0 to earn the championship, including a victory over East Kentwood’s Austin Wieczorek, one of the top-ranked 103-pounders in the state.
