Wrestling: Region 8 postponed until Saturday

The Region 8 wrestling championships have been postponed until Saturday.

Absegami High School, site of the competition, is closed today. A message on the school's home page indicates that all sporting events have been cancelled.

Region 8 officials plans to condense events planned for today and Saturday into one long day of wrestling on Saturday.

Quarterfinal action, which was scheduled for tonight, will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday. Officials estimate that third-place consolations will begin around 3 p.m. and that championship finals will begin around 5 p.m.
