Crouse gets knocked early at state wrestling meet

South Tahoe sophomore Mike Crouse, who had hoped to place in the 103-pound division at the Nevada 4A state wrestling meet, came away dissappointed after two straight losses at the Winnemucca Indoor Events Center.

In the first round, Palo Verde’s Glenn Terrano won by decision 18-10 over Crouse, who was the runner-up at last weekend’s Northern 4A meet. Then in the loser’s bracket, Crouse was pinned by McQueen’s Justin Lee and was eliminated.

Lee, who finished behind Crouse at zone and had to win a pigtail match on Friday just to get into state quarterfinals, lost his first match but went on to place fourth. After defeating Crouse and Carson’s Owen Craugh in the loser’s bracket, Lee lost to Terrano in the consolation finals.

Cimarron-Memorial won its third consecutive team state championship by finishing first with 193.5 points. Las Vegas took second and Fallon placed third.

Only three Northern 4A wrestlers won state titles: Wooster’s Rodney Stivers (125 pounds), and Fallon’s Tommy Diaz (152) and Josh Mauga (275).
