PREP: Craugh takes 8th at TOC wrestling
RENO – Patrick Craugh went 2-2 on Saturday to finish in eighth place in the 112-pound weight class at the prestigious Tournament of Champions Saturday at the Reno Event Center
Craugh, a senior, went 5-3 in the two-day event, which gives him some nice momentum heading into Tuesday’s American River Invitational.
Craugh is the first Carson wrestler coached by Tim McCarthy to finish in the top eight.
“Overall, a good weekend,” McCarthy said. “Placing in this tournament is pretty special. He lost a little steam the last couple of matches.”
McCarthy was referring to the 7-0 loss to East Anchorage’s Nathan Marquez and the 9-3 setback to Clovis West’s Brandon Rodriguez.
Craugh started the day with a pin against Lucas Vagher of Pomona, and then knocked off the No. 7 seed Braxton Vandertoolen of Bingham-Utah.
