ROCHELLE — Local wrestling standouts Eddie Villalobos and Alex Harvey have very recently returned from representing the state of Illinois in national wrestling tournaments, and both were quite successful despite competing at such a high level.

Harvey competed at the Brute Folkstyle Nationals in Independence, Mo. at 118 pounds, and he was a national finalist, which earned him All-American status. He finished in second place and national runner-up, losing his finals match 6-1. Harvey went 3-1 in the tournament.

Thirty-three different states were represented at the tournament with 10 different states being in Harvey’s own weight class.
