Cole Whitehead has made a habit of close wins. A 3-1 win in the opening round led to a 3-0 win in the second. It only stands to reason that his semifinals match would follow suit.
It did. Whitehead weathered a few late attacks to edge out Central DeWitt's Keaton Zeimet in a 2-1 decision to advance to the state finals. He'll face off against Crestwood's Carter Fousek, the top seed in the 113-pound bracket.
