Prep roundup: Carson wrestling rolls to win
The Carson wrestling team won four of six matches wrestled in a Sierra League match at Manogue on Wednesday.
Carson won eight matches by forfeit on its way to a 70-9 win over the Miners. In its four wins, Carson won three matches by pin and the other by major decision.
Kyle Rudy won by pin in the first period at 132 pounds, Nathan Mersino won by pin at 138 and John Rowe won by pin at 220. Seth Reichelt won by major decision 9-1 at 152.
Jake Roman lost by pin in the third period at 145 in a hard fought match and Jesse Case lost 12-9 at 170 for Carson. “He wrestled very hard,” said Carson coach Keith Shaffer about Case. “All of the kids that wrestled, they needed to have a great test. They wrestled well. I think we need to work on conditioning a little but. Other than that I thought we wrestled pretty well overall.”
Shaffer added Mersino and Rudy looked sharp in their matches.
