Wrestlers prepare for meet

WARRENSBURG - Inside their cave-like cinder-block headquarters Jan. 3, the Warrensburg Central School Wrestlers were relentlessly practicing moves, running drills, and conducting exercises - as they have for most days during their winter vacation.

Over the holiday break, the team has either been participating in these workouts, or competing in a tournament.

A primary reason for their strenuous schedule is the annual Warrensburg Duals Meet set for this weekend - when each wrestler has a match every 90 minutes, competing in a total of five matches during the day.

On Jan. 8, Warrensburg will host six teams which wrestle a lineup of competitors over one long day. Schools competing represent three sections in the state. Entered in the meet are Hudson Falls, Albany Academy, Hoosick Falls, Morrisville-Eaton, Beekmantown, and host Warrensburg. Wrestling competition starts at 9:30 a.m. About 400 people annually attend the meet, a standout event for local wrestling enthusiasts.

Food concessions are open through the day.
