Fate of Wrestling in Section VI to be Decided Thursday
January 27, 2021


The WNY county departments of health are meeting tomorrow to discuss the fate of HS wrestling for this season here in WNY. A press release by Chautauqua County on January 27th urged schools to consider postponing or cancelling the wrestling season altogether. The press release references a CDC report that, while didn?t explicitly blame, essentially referenced a wrestling tournament in Louisiana from early December 2020 as the location in which contact tracers say twenty people caught Covid-19 and one person died. Doesn?t it seem like Covid issues in the first week of December could just as easily be blamed on Thanksgiving gatherings? Why is this topic not moot after nearly two whole months?
