Petersburg Wrestling Tournament 2012 Kindergarten through 8th Grade
The young wrestlers of Petersburg posed for a photo after Saturday’s awards ceremony.
Last weekend Petersburg hosted their annual spring wrestling tournament with six visiting teams and over 150 wrestlers. Visiting teams included Craig, Wrangell, Ketchikan, Sitka, Juneau, Douglas, and Kake. There were over 750 matches, and these young grapplers gained some valuable wrestling experience. Two Wrangell referees, Harry Churchill and Jeffry Davidson, worked for two long days and refused to be paid. They said it was their way of “giving back” to our Southeast wrestling family. There were many hard fought, competitive matches throughout the tournament and an overall great experience.
