The Walker Valley Mustangs took two wins on the wrestling mat Friday against East Hamilton and Rhea County. The Mustangs made easy work of the Hamilton Hurricanes, winning 70-4, and put a quick finish to the Eagles with a 75-3 victory.

At the same time, the Cleveland Blue Raiders, sharing another portion of "The Stable," also took their turn against the Hurricanes and Golden Eagles. Cleveland wrestled to a 66-12 win over Rhea and a 57-15 victory against the Hurricanes.

Austin Gregory (126), Tyrus Hamrick (145), Ryan Hager (152), Billy Raulston (182) and Zach Miller (285) all earned pins against East Hamilton.

Joseph Munoz won a major decision for the Mustangs at 132.

Against Rhea County, Elijah Earls fought to a pin at 120 for the Mustangs. Munoz and Mikel Gregory (138) also earned pins, as did Hamrick, Lawrence Cotton (160), Raulston and Xzayvier Beckingham (220).

"We did what we expected to do," said Mustangs coach Al Morris. "But we need to look a lot better. We are going to continue to work on areas of weakness we have and hopefully keep getting better every day."
