MBC Wrestling Meet this Saturday in Amery

The Middle Border Conference Wrestling Meet for 2017 will be in Amery Saturday beginning at 9:30 a.m.

No. 1 ranked Ellsworth is the defending champion and has won the meet which determines the league champions 12 straight times.

The Prescott High School wrestling team has a shot of finishing in the top half of the meet after taking seventh last season.

"We have the opportunity to get several wrestlers into the semifinals and into the finals and having place in the top four,” PHS head coach Jordan Poirier said. “If we do that the points should be there to have a top four finish.”
