Pershing County wrestlers compete in Northern 2A regional duals

The Pershing County wrestling team started division duals this past week. On Thursday Devin Moura, Wyatt Hughes, Justin Carruth and Lucian Gonzalez traveled to Yerington to compete.

“We are heading into the final push,” said PCHS coach Mike Brooks. “We are only wrestling 2A opponents for the rest of the season with duals, regional and state.”

Moura went 3-0 at the Yerington duals. Hughes wrestled one exhibition. He was undefeated in his weight class. Gonzalez also wrestled one exhibition but was undefeated by forfeit in his weight class.

“Justin (Carruth) showed improvement and put together a comeback for a big victory,” said the coach.

On Saturday Hughes and Carruth competed in the McQueen JV regionals in Reno. Hughes started off strong with two pins but dropped the next two. He finished fifth.

The duals continue in Battle Mountain this weekend.
