Congratulations to our Final Four below and to the 2017 Mr Wrestling Champion – Ben Freeman of Walled Lake Central!!!

Freeman has a career record of 163-1 and is the 22nd wrestler in state history to win four state titles!


Ben Freeman - WINNER!

Walled Lake Central | 140-pound - Senior

Freeman can become the 22nd wrestler in state history to win four state championships later this year at The Palace of Auburn Hills. This technical wizard is already committed to wrestle at Michigan.

Dom LaJoie

Gaylord | 125-pound - Senior

It will be interesting to see how LaJoie bounces back after losing in the finals last year following two state titles during his freshman and sophomore years. He will wrestle at Cornell next season.

Drew Marten

Tecumseh | 130 pounds - Senior

Scored a great win last year in the finals when he beat Lowell’s Lucas Hall to win his first state championship. Marten will wrestle for coach Tom Borelli and Central Michigan next year.

Trent Hillger

Lake Fenton | Heavyweight - Senior

This powerful heavyweight also doubles as a quarterback for the football team. Hillger, who will be wrestling for Wisconsin next year, wrestles like a lighter weight wrestler in a weight class built on brute force.
