Boys Wrestlers Set Records at NCS

Two weeks ago at the North Coast Section Wrestling Championships College Park had some ground breaking individuals.  The first feat was the Karas triplets.  Seniors Daniel, Steven and Eric all placed in the medal rounds at the event.  This is a first in NCS Wrestling History to have triplet medalists.  Daniel placed 8th at 138 lbs, Steven placed 4th at 220 lbs and Eric placed 6th at the HW division.  This was the first time to medal for Daniel and Steven, while Eric had placed 7th as a sophomore and 6th as a Junior.  The brothers all started wrestling with the Pleasant Hill Wrestling Club coached by former College Park coach Cory Salmon.  The boys loved the sport and practiced and competed year round including team trips to Idaho and camping at Yellowstone National Park.


Gus Petruske finished his career as a 4x NCS Medalist and 4X State Qualifier.  The only other wrestler in College Park history with this accomplishment was College Park Hall of Famer Casey Strand.  Gus finished his HS NCS wrestling career with a 2nd place finish as a freshman, 3rd place as a sophomore and 2 Championship as a junior and senior.  Gus also started wresting with the Pleasant Hill Wrestling Club.  Also earning a medal for the first time this year was junior Falcon Andrew Hamant who placed 8th at 160 lbs.  Great job boys!
