Weekend tourney schedule

The tournament action is set to pick up this weekend, assuming that the weather cooperates. The forecast for Saturday is not good, so stay tuned. I’ll provide updates on any postponements by tomorrow morning.

If all of the wrestling is able to proceed as scheduled, there will be five local tourneys taking place on Saturday — two of which will get started this afternoon. It was a tough choice deciding which one to cover, but the Jerry Maguire at North Rockland is simply too good to pass up. Not only will it feature some of the top programs from Section 1 with teams like North Rockland, Fox Lane and TZ, but it will also include strong private schools such as Fordham Prep and Cardozo, plus a major heavyweight in two-time defending state champ Wantagh from Long Island. Outside of Eastern States and the Shoreline, you won’t find many regular season tourneys that are more competitive than this one. Follow me on Twitter @vzmercogliano to keep track of all of the action.

  1. JJEF is changed to a one-day, single-elimination bracket tournament. Wrestling begins today about 4:00.

  2. they are going to do an entire tournament on a friday night ??? that should be fun lol

    Yorktown looking to wrestle late into the night and wrap up by 12:00 tomorrow, get everyone home before the roads get bad. sounds like the best way to do it.

  3. Yorktown finished the entire tournament on Friday. Does this now mean that it is considered officially as a 1 day tournament?

  4. Yes it’s a one day, You can wrestle in as many 2 day tournaments as you want, well 6 max. But you can only enter 2, two day dual meet tournaments.

    nice name really original
