Sectionals begin today; new coverage plans


Now that it’s Sunday and the dust has finally settled, we have some wrestling to look forward to. Just to reiterate the details of the new schedule, the D1 championships will be held at Pace today and run through the quarters. The tourney will be picked back up at Pace on Monday at 3 p.m. for the semis and finals. The D2 championships will be completed as a one-day tourney today at Irvington. No wrestle backs out of the first round due to timing issues for either tourney; meaning if you lose your first match, you’re done. I know it’s not ideal, but with a men’s basketball game being postponed yesterday, a last minute wrench was thrown into the plans.

The good news is that now I’ll get to cover the finals for both divisions. Since D1 will pick back up at Pace on Monday, I’m going to head to Irvington today for the D2 tourney. Dan DeFrancesco will now be at Pace to cover to the first few rounds of the D1 tourney. We’ll update with results on the blog as often as we can, and have videos posted later from both divisions. For live updates throughout the day, follow me on Twitter @vzmercogliano, and follow Dan @Lohud_DeFran.

Best of luck to all of the wrestlers who will be competing!

    Is it crazy that I entered in a captcha to write about disliking captchas?

    LoHud Wrestling Blog. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it look as if like some of the comments look as if they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
