Local heavyweights Roy Lucas of St. Joseph High School and Robert Frederico of Hammonton each pinned their opponents in less than 30 seconds on Friday to advance in the District 30 wrestling tournament at Overbrook.

Top-seed Lucas pinned Overbrook’s Beau White in 21 seconds in the opening round, while Frederico pinned Timber Creek’s Nick Spero in 17 seconds. Lucas will face fourth-seeded Justin McCouch from Overbrook and Frederico takes on No. 3 seed Martel Harrison from Highland Regional today. The pair could meet later today in the finals.
