Eastern States Classic begins today



Getting up while its still dark out is not the norm for a sportswriter such as myself, but then again, it’s not a normal morning. The Eastern States Classic will begin at Sullivan Community College in Loch Sheldrake in about an hour and a half, and I’m preparing to hit the road. I’ll be there all weekend to provide full coverage of all of the local wrestlers who will be competing, so be sure to follow me on Twitter @vzmercogliano and keep up with the blog.

For a look at the brackets and results as they come in, your best bet is to check escapesports.com. As often as I can, I’ll post the results of matches involving locals, as well as videos, interviews, reaction and more. Wrestling is set to begin around 9:15 a.m.

Here are some links to help get you set for the tourney:
