Truckee senior Tim Curtis moved up from the 171-pound weight class to 189 and pinned Callen Haughian in the opening match. Curtis jumped out to an early 11-2 lead.

Then 119-pounder Kyle Mullen dropped a 5-2 decision. Ryan Pearce was pinned in the second period by Riley Warren in the 125-pound match.

Bobby Waters, at 135 pounds, pinned Logan Cohen in the third period. At 145 pounds, Nick Krasensky received a forfeit.

Cole Hodges, a senior wrestling at 152 pounds, was pinned by Matt Behren in the third period, and at 160 pounds Robert Raber lost a close match 4-6.

A few exhibition matches took place, as well, with Truckee’s Ryan Pearce pinning Jimmy Mancuso, Nick Krasensky winning by decision, Tim Curtis technical falling Cody Parker 21-5, and Bobby Waters winning an exciting quadruple overtime match over Riley Warren.

Because of a change in scheduling, Truckee will travel to Burney Falls ” instead of Tonopah ” for a tournament this weekend.
