Hidlay brothers win in first dual meet of 2021
RALEIGH, N.C. –Mifflin County High School graduates Hayden and Trent Hidlay got their 2021-22 wrestling seasons started in style on Sunday, as both brothers won easily in North Carolina State’s dual against West Virginia.
Trent wasted no time making short work of his opponent, locking up a devastating head lock on the Mountaineers’ Anthony Carman for a first-period pin that took just 22 seconds.
Hayden’s much anticipated debut at 174 pounds was an easy victory, as he picked up a 19-3 tech fall over WVU’s Dennis Robin.
The Hidlays will return to dual meet competition on Dec. 2 when the Wolfpack host Gardner Webb.
