Weather halts Middle Park trip to wrestling tournament

After getting off to an excellent start in their season-opening tournament the previous weekend, Middle Park High’s wrestling team had hoped to follow up with more top results last weekend but bad weather prevented them from competing.

The Panther grapplers were scheduled to wrestle in the Buena Vista Dual Team Tournament on Saturday, Dec. 8. A total of 12 teams were to compete in the meet with the Panthers slated to wrestle five of them.

Heavy snowfall and high winds forced the cancellation of the tournament.

While frustrated by the cancellation, the Panthers are now focusing on the two days of competition planned this weekend in Grand County.
