PERU - The Peru varsity wrestling team enjoyed the home cooking, scoring a team victory in its annual Peru Wrestling Tournament held Jan. 14 and Jan. 15.
"Its a nice one before we go to Eastern States," coach Mike Hogan said about the tournament. "The boys love wrestling at home in our tournament. It's the main day of the season for Peru wrestling."
In the heavyweight division at 285, AuSable Valley's David Thompson (13-5) scored several points on takedowns and a couple of near falls, but was reversed mid-way through the second period, falling by pin against defending Peru tourney champion Eric Decker.
