HS Schedule

When you see a ? in the list of teams, it means the coach has been asked who is in their tournament and hasn't responded.
Events will remain listed here until individual tournament results are sent to me or dual results are entered in Trackwrestling.





Updated Oct 21, 2008



Looking to collect any old Section 8 or Section 11 County Wrestling Tournament programs and filled in brackets.

Mail them to Steve Meehan PO Box 368, Oakdale NY 11769 or drop them off @ 117 Dale Dr, Oakdale NY 11769 or give me a call and I'll come pick them up if you have more than a few.. (April 7)
