Wrestlers get ready for season
North Marion grapplers warm up with intra-squad dual, friends help raise proceeds for the wrestling team
The North Marion wrestling program kickstarted the season Wednesday with a dual at North Marion High School that brought together local wrestlers from all ages and weight classes.
Athletes from throughout the North Marion wrestling program competed against each other as a tune-up for the 2013 winter season while helping to raise funds for the wrestling program.
Spectators were welcome to purchase meals and wrestling apparel with proceeds going to help fund the wrestling team while observing the first official action of the year.
The North Marion High?School varsity team was scheduled to compete Saturday at Cascade High?School, but the match was canceled due to poor road conditions. Instead, the Huskies will travel to Sweet Home High School on Wednesday to open the season against their Husky rivals to the south.
This weekend, the Friends of North Marion Wrestling host a prime rib dinner and auction at Fir Point Farms Saturday at 5 p.m.
Individual tickets are available at $12 each or $20 for a pair. Dinner includes prime rib, hot butter rolls, Caesar salad, scalloped potatoes and dessert.
A Traeger grill will be raffled off at the event, which also includes a silent auction. Tickets can be purchased from any North Marion wrestler or from coach Jared Wilson.
Tickets are also available at Fir Point Farms – located at 14601 Arndt Road – the night of the event.
