Season In Limbo: Health Departments Recommend Against Hosting Wrestling
January 28, 2021


Western New York Health Department leaders from five counties have recommended that interscholastic, intramural and amateur wrestling teams and leagues cancel or postpone their winter seasons to a later date, when community transmission of COVID-19 is significantly lower.


"This is so unfair to kids on so many levels. To put these kids on the roller coaster ride they have been put on is ridiculous," Drew Wilcox, Falconer/Cassadaga Valley wrestling coach, said Wednesday evening. "To push the season back multiple times and then come out and say they can wrestle, but pull your word back less than 24 hours later" is so unfair to our kids.
