Rock Falls earns second straight tourney trophy
Rockets' twin titles
ERIE – Last weekend, the Rock Falls Rockets got a taste of what it means to win the team title at an area wrestling tournament. It felt so good, they matched the feat Saturday at the Erie-Prophetstown Tournament.
Behind five individual champions, including lower-weights MVP Carlos Gutierrez, Rock Falls won the team trophy for a second straight weekend. Leading by 24.5 points heading into the final-round matches, the Rockets pulled away with four straight victories from 170-220 pounds.
"This means a lot; it's so awesome, and we really like this feeling," said Gutierrez, who won by technical fall over AFC's Anthony Hahn in the 113-pound final. "We were wrestling so good, and the guys at the end took advantage of our chance to wrap up this title."
