Wrestling State Tournament Central
The Shore Conference and its 42 wrestlers descend on Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City this weekend for the NJSIAA Individual Tournament, where 14 state champions will be crowned in one of the nation's most prestigious high school wrestling state championships.
Shore Sports Network will be there all weekend with stories, videos, results and live updates to chronicle Region 6 wrestlers on their quests for high school wrestling greatness.
The tournament begins on Friday night with the preliminary round at 5 p.m. pitting the second- and third-place finishers from the state's eight regions. Those winners move onto the pre-quarterfinals against one of the eight region champions who have received a bye.
The tournament resumes on Saturday morning with the quarterfinals at 10 a.m., followed by wrestlebacks until a schedule intermission at 3 p.m. The action starts back up again at 5 p.m. with the semifinal, followed by one additional round of consolation bouts.
At 10 a.m. on Sunday, one more round of wrestlebacks leads into the third-, fifth- and seventh-place bouts. The finals are scheduled for 3 p.m.
