Perrelli, Carter win bronze medals at Cerro Pelado International in Cuba

HAVANA, Cuba –Two U.S. men’s freestyle wrestlers won bronze medal at the Cerro Pelado International on Friday.

Claiming bronze medals were young talents Frank Perrelli (Hackettstown, N.J./New York AC) at 55 kg/121 lbs. and Devin Carter (Blacksburg, Va./Hokie Mat Club) at 60 kg/132 lbs. Both had impressive 3-1 records.

Perrelli, the former All-American at Cornell, defeated Perez of Panama, 3-0, 6-0 in the bronze-medal match.

Carter, an All-American at Virginia Tech who is on a redshirt year, defeated Abel Herrera of Peru, 4-4, 1-1, 2-1.

Carter has had a strong international season so far, winning a gold medal at the Dave Schultz Memorial and a bronze medal at the New York Athletic Club International.

“The guys wrestled well today. Frank beat the No. 1 Cuban in his second match. Devin showed a lot of promise for such a young guy,” said U.S. coach Jim Humphrey.

The men’s freestyle competition continues this weekend with additional American competitors.
