On Friday, Nov. 10, in the PRMS fieldhouse over 70 Merrill area youth wrestlers competed in the annual city tournament. This tournament has been around for many years and is a great opportunity for Merrill youth to get a taste of wrestling. All wrestlers practice for a couple weeks at each of the Merrill elementary schools and then compete at Friday’s tournament.
Head High School wrestling coach Brian Suchocki said, “It is great to see all the support from the parents, coaches, school and community for these wrestlers. We look forward to seeing them wrestle some day at the high school. Our motto for the program – ‘We are all future Bluejays’!”
