MOUNT JOY - James Buchanan claimed two individual titles and placed sixth as a team at the Donegal Holiday Wrestling Tournament on Saturday.
Austin Tucker won at 126 pounds and Casey Glunt took the crown at 152 for JB. Hunter Faith was a runner-up at 120 and Blake Egolf (138) and Cameron Fox (145) each placed fourth.
Rockets coach Matt Gordon said, "It was a pretty good tournament for us to get sixth and we only took seven kids, which is half a team. We were able to finish ahead of four teams."
Tucker rolled to a 5-0 record with one pin, and he defeated Todd Dumas of Ephrata 5-3 in the final. Glunt was also 5-0 with three falls, and he took out Nick Stephani of Troy 7-3 in the championship.
Gordon said, "Both Austin and Casey wrestled flawlessly. Austin wrestled a smart match in the final. Casey's kid was 16-0 coming in and everybody was watching that match. Casey rode him well and got the points when he needed to. He got a takedown at the end to seal the win."
Faith was 3-1 with a pin and fell 5-1 to Nate Green of Red Land in the final.
"He's still wrestling up a weight class, so he pretty well," Gordon said.
