Compelling matchups set for Region 2-AA wrestling meet
Friday, January 24, 2014 12:00 AM
Ninety Six High School may have won its first region team wrestling title since 1998, but there should be some interesting matchups at the region individual meet, starting 10 a.m. Saturday in the Wildcats' home gym.
Among them are at 120 and 195 pounds.
In the 120-pound category, Abbeville's Austin Knox and Ninety Six's Austin Roche could make for one compelling matchup. At 195, a close competition is expected between Abbeville's Ben Glace and Ninety Six's Bradley Weaghington.
Will they have the chance to wrestle each other? Of course.
That's because this tournament is round-robin, whereas wrestlers from Abbeville and Ninety Six will also have to compete against those in their weight classes from Mid-Carolina and Newberry.
