Tioga, Horseheads, Chenango Forks take aim at state dual meet titles
January 30, 2020


Consider Tioga Central wrestling coach Kris Harrington a convert.

For years, the Union-Endicott Dual Meet Tournament served as the unofficial state championship, bringing together the state’s top teams in late January.

Then in 2018, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association initiated a state dual meet tournament.

“I was on the fence on it,” Harrington said of the first year. “Having been out there for it for the last two years, it’s one of the best events going.”

Many others around the state would agree with Harrington. Loud cheers from various spots in Onondaga Community College’s SRC Arena that surround the eight mats have provided an entertaining atmosphere.
