Wrestling’s sectionals cancelled, state swimming meet pushed back again

With forecasts of snow and ice storms for Friday and Sunday, the GHSA has altered its schedule again.

The state swimming meet, which had already been postponed from this weekend until Monday and Tuesday, has been pushed back again. It will resume Tuesday through Thursday at Westminster School. The Class AAAAA championship will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday, while the Class A-AAAA championships are scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday.

Wrestling’s sectionals have been cancelled completely, with the GHSA changing the structure of next weekend’s state championships for traditional wrestling at Gwinnett Arena. An extra day has been added to the state tournament: Class AA, AAA, AAAA, and AAAAA will have a 32-man bracket (instead of 16), with weigh-ins scheduled for Wednesday night. Class A will have a 16-man bracket (instead of 8-man) and start at 8 a.m. Thursday.

So I guess twice as many wrestlers can say they made State this year. Good for them.

If the conditions are as bad as they are right now on Monday, we’ll all be sitting at home saying “where’s the snow?”

Why the disparaging comment? The kids that swim and get to the finals at a high school meet have put in a lot of work. The sport is not subsidized by the school except for the small amount the coaches make. And most swimmers are excellent students. The top swimmers coming out of Atlanta Amada, Weir Kathleen Hersey have gone to the Olympics. So if you come out and see the finals you are watching world class athletes

Watch out for swimmer Jack Lane from Lakeside to come on strong no matter when the finals are.
