2 star wrestlers from Durham High are heading to college | New
DURHAM, Calif. – Durham High School celebrates two star wrestlers taking it to the next level.
With their mothers by their side, Aaron Hernandez and Noah Petit signed their letters of intent for college on Friday.
Hernandez is heading to the Division II school at Lander University in South Carolina. Petit will fight for Luther College in Iowa.
The two say they can’t wait to go to college, but know they’re going to go through some changes.
“It’s kind of hard to learn new things while wrestling the same person, so I’m really looking forward to having several different wrestling partners per week,” Hernandez said.
“[I’m] looking forward to going there. I’m one of the first in my family to go to college and I can’t wait to wrestle there,” Petit said.
Hernandez and Petit’s wrestling coach Tony Cordoza spoke to Action News Now and described the two boys as great teammates and great leaders at Durham High School.
“I like to see what they will do at the next level and we are very proud of them,” said coach Cordoza. “That’s eight kids currently struggling through college for our program, so for a small school like Durham, we’re very proud of that.”
