2021 Section 9 Wrestling Season

As we all know by now, the 2020 – 2021 Section 9 Wrestling season is not going to be what we had in mind. We have only 8 teams (one being a combined team) that are able to compete, and the entire season will be over in a matter of a few weeks. I could go on and on about how disappointing this is on so many levels – especially for our seniors – but I won’t. Instead I will do two things on this site. I will of course provide the coverage on our abbreviated season which is laid out below. Secondly I will put together a post, perhaps several posts, to give special recognition to every single senior in Section 9 wrestling – especially those who have had their senior season taken away from them due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay strong Section 9.

  1. Thank you Mike. We are all saddened about what COVID has done to our kids. Especially the seniors who have worked for years to get to this point. It’s heartbreaking to say the least. Our thoughts are also with those teams that do not get a chance to wrestle at all. 😔

  2. Thank you for doing this.

    Certainly not the year any athletes across Section 9 had hoped and worked for.

    Heartbreaking to say the least. Grateful that they have this. And grateful for those helping to make this happen for the kids.

    Appreciate all you have done.

    Take care,

  3. Mike, will you be covering the Journeymen NYS Championships being held in PA in April? I’ve always enjoyed your detailed commentary on not only the local scene, but the states as well, and I’m hoping you’ll be adding your insight into this tournament as well. Thanks, again, for all you do here.
