High school wrestling: Region’s wrestling teams host live competition for the first time since 2019-2020 | High school sports


The Frontier League and Northern Athletic Conference wrestling seasons have hit the mat this week in hopes of finishing the season.

Beaver River hosted Indian River on Tuesday night in the Frontier League’s first double encounter since the end of the 2019-20 season. Two NAC games kick off the Section 10 season tonight.

Last year’s schedule was one of many shattered by the COVID-19 pandemic. The coaches are delighted to finally be able to resume the games that matter.

“It’s great and long overdue,” said Carthage coach Don Dorchester. “Just being able to go to someone else’s gym and compete against other competitors is a great feeling.”

There was wrestling in high school during the 2020-21 school year, but they were more like modified encounters where wrestlers were matched against each other based on their abilities. It at least allowed the wrestlers to spend some time on the mat.

“At least we got something last year,” Dorchester said.

Some wrestlers decided to go to weekend tournaments during the last wrestling season. There was even a version of the New York State tournament held in April in Manheim, PA. Governor’s Carter Baer won the title at 160 pounds while Indian River’s Aiden Poe (fourth, 170) and Alex Booth (fifth, 126) each won the top five. .

The 2020 NYSPHSAA wrestling tournament was one of the last winter championships to take place before high school sports were canceled due to the pandemic. The plan is to move forward with a full season that includes weekend tournaments statewide.

“At this point, we care about what we can control,” Dorchester said. “I don’t think we take anything for granted.

The main concern, however, is trying to navigate this slate while a global pandemic is underway. Competitors should always wear masks like other indoor winter sports like basketball and volleyball.

“Last year they tasted it, so it’s not even an afterthought,” Dorchester said.

The schedule has already been affected as the prestigious Eastern States Championship which takes place in early January at Sullivan Community College in Loch Sheldrake has been canceled due to concerns over COVID-19 and the likely increase in cases due to of the holiday season. The tournament brings together the best wrestlers from New York, Pennsylvania and other states to prepare for each state’s respective tournaments.

Losing this tournament can make it more difficult to rank Section and State tournaments. Cancellation can prevent some one-on-one clashes that are often used to assess wrestlers for future clashes.

Indian River and Carthage will look to go head-to-head for the Frontier League “A” Division title while General Brown will seek to be one of the top teams in the “B” Division. But many teams are starting from scratch due to the lack of a 2020-21 season.

This is also the first year with new weight classes, as the state has gone from 15 to 13. The new weights are 102, 110, 118, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 172, 189, 215 and 285 lbs. .

“We want to make the doubles more competitive,” state wrestling coordinator Marty Sherman said on the NYSPHSAA website, which noted a statewide trend of teams. winners on the mat, but losing games because of forfeits. “We felt it was the right time. Pennsylvania went (from 14) to 13 classes this year, and we felt the same.
