Big time changes.
The Big 10 Wrestling Championships have been rescheduled for Wednesday and Thursday of this week at Lewis County High School.
The re-scheduling, done because of recent inclement weather, has put each team in a difficult predicament. The original date of the tournament was this past weekend, so now the wrestlers are going to be wrestling in the middle of the week.
“The thing is, we have to go to school and then after school, you have to get on a bus,” Fairmont Senior’s head coach Mark Delligatti said. “Then you have to ride to Lewis County. So, it will be a little different.”
Big time changes.
