The Silver and Blue Club is looking to defend its team national title at this weekend’s tournament.

Nevada’s J.J. Mariano faced off against UNLV’s Mike Alvarez. At a weight of 147, Mariano bested the Alvarez and has qualified for nationals. He will still fight Saturday in the regional championship.

Kirk Jackson also represented Nevada in the ring against Adan Rangel of the University of Washington. Jackson took the bout and stamped his ticket to the nationals.

He’ll also look to win the regional title Saturday, with all of the action starting at 6 p.m.
