Urquijo was 5-0 on the day with two pins and was named the most outstanding wrestler of the upper weight divisions according to San Luis head coach Rob Jankowski.
“Carlos looked good, wrestled hard and transitioned from move to move very well,” Jankowski said. “He was dominating from the first to last match.”
