Despite Mother Nature showing the area the cold shoulder, wrestlers won’t be given the time to relax like other area high schoolers.
Teams were planning to leave early this morning for the state tournament, but due to the influx of snow known as Pax, those plans might be moved to a little later in the day. Luckily the AA/AAA schools won’t be wrestling until Friday morning.
Four male wrestlers will be representing the area with two of them receiving first-round byes.
Seniors Timmy Morris (25-9) and Marvin Areas (32-9), from Happy Valley and Elizabethon respectively, will be able to sit out the first round.
