Two of the Lowco’s top high school wrestlers earned fifth-place finishes at the 2020 Reno Worlds in Tulsa last weekend in Oklahoma.
Hilton Head High’s James Levy (113 pounds) and May River’s Isham Peace (120) each placed fifth in the 18-and-under division.
Levy received a first-round bye and pinned Oklahoma’s Guy Clevenger to advance to the semifinals before losing a technical fall (18-2) to Pennsylvania’s Sean Logue and a 7-1 decision to Illinois’ Chad Bellis. The Seahawk star bounced back with an 11-6 victory over Georgia’s Dominic DiTomasso to secure fifth place.
Peace opened the tournament with a pin of Washington’s Dilyn Jimenez before dropping a 4-0 decision to Nebraska’s Chris Williams in the quarterfinals. He won two hard-fought decisions — 7-3 over Georgia’s Gavin Hayes and 3-2 over Louisiana’s Joshua Sarpy — to reach the medal round, then dropped a tough 8-6 decision in overtime to Dominic Chavez of Texas before clinching fifth with an 11-4 win over Iowa’s Bailey Roybal.
In the 15-and-under division, Hilton Head High’s Santiago Rueda (135 pounds) and May River’s Gabriel Juarez (157) each went 1-2 and fell short of the medal round.
