Durango High School wrestled four duals Saturday at a dual meet tournament in Farmington, and they walked away with three dominating victories and a promising performance against the defending Class 4A state champions from New Mexico.
We had a pretty good day for sure, DHS wrestling coach Doug Cuddie said.
Volcano Vista, a defending state champion from the Albuquerque area, defeated Durango 41-21, the Demons only loss on the afternoon.
Theyre really good, Cuddie said of Volcano Vista. We wrestled really well actually.
In their other duals, Durango defeated host Farmington 51-19, Kirtland Central 66-3 and Highlands, another Albuquerque school, 78-0.
They didnt have a whole lot of kids, Cuddie said of Highlands.
Rudy Peterson, Gabe Crawford and Elliott Salazar all were 4-0 on the afternoon.
Donald Kirby, Dakota Sutherlin, DJ Etzler, Lucas Sinnig, Joe Ott-Edwards and Trevor Gillen all went 3-1.
Clay Dillon and Justin Ngo went 2-2, and Garrett Marcum went 1-3 for the Demons.
Everybody won a match, and some of our guys really wrestled well (Saturday), Cuddie said.
Durango next will wrestle at 6 p.m. Thursday at Dove Creek.
