February 9, 2013
Nevada Union took four of its wrestlers to Mission San Jose for a weekend tournament and came back with two champions, including a ninth place team finish out of 78 teams.
Keaton Richards faced some quality opponents and showed great toughness, but was knocked out on the first day. Sawyer Mosel went 4-2 winning matches on the second day to finish in the top 12. Jonny Callas and Will Sumner had very close and exciting finals matches as they dug deep and won gold medals.
Nevada Union will now gear up for the Sierra Foothill League tournament at Woodcreek High School Saturday.
