ROCHELLE — The Hubs varsity wrestling team is catching fire, and neither Sandwich nor Rockford Jefferson could do anything to slow the purple and white down when the two schools traveled to Rochelle Township High School this past Saturday for a triangular meet.

Rochelle took down Sandwich by a score of 56-15 and blew past Rockford Jefferson 72-12. The Hubs have now won each of their last eight matches, improving to 13-6 overall and jumping to 12-2 against nonconference schools this season.

Junior Alex Harvey (12-0) kicked off Rochelle’s match against Sandwich with a win by fall, while sophomore Pedro Lopez (1-5) earned a forfeit to receive his first varsity victory of the season. Sophomores Edwin Vega (11-10) and Nick Henson (11-7) strung back-to-back wins to extend the Hub lead to 24 points before the Indians rebounded with two wins of their own at 106 and 113 pounds.
