Wolverines’ Claesson holds 32-1 record
Buck Claesson, wrestling at the 130-pound weight class, continued his dominance this past weekend at the Fernley High School Wrestling Tournament.
Claesson won his fourth tournament of the year by going 4-0 in the tournament. The victories brought his record for the season to 32 wins and 1 loss. The Truckee wrestler has a winning streak of 30 wins in a row. His only loss was in the first tournament of the year.
“In my coaching career, 20 years at the high school, I have never had a kid this dominant,” said Ron Curtis, Truckee’s head coach.
“Nor I have had a kid win four tournaments in a season.”
Curtis said his top wrestler still has some challenges ahead, including Dan Stenovich of Spring Creek, who beat Claesson last year.
“We must wrestle this weekend in our divisional duals, wrestling every team in our league,” Curtis said. “Buck beat pretty strong in the finals of the Winnemucca Tournament earlier this year. But all of that is in the past, he must do it one or two more times in the next three weeks.”
Also placing well last weekend was 160-pound senior Nathan Wrenn. Wrenn went 3-2 for the tournament. He won his second match against Yerington’s Tim Skroch, but ended losing to him in his last match of the tournament for fourth place.
Placing sixth in the tournament were sophomores Clayton Acuff, wrestling at 103lb weight class, and Tim Curtis, wrestling at 152lb weight class.
