Two Gloucester High School wrestlers—Devon Pullen (170 lbs.) and Matt Favazzo (113 lbs.)—placed in their respective weight classes at last weekend’s Eastern Region Tournament at Oscar Smith High School in Chesapeake.

Pullen posted a 4-1 record to finish in third place, while Favazzo compiled a 2-3 record to take sixth place. Pullen’s third-place finish qualifies him for the Group AAA state tournament, which will be held on Friday and Saturday at Oscar Smith. Pullen won a 7-4 decision over Amir Horton of Great Bridge in the consolation finals.
