County wrestling week arrives
Matches begin Friday and finals are on Saturday
Tuesday, January 8, 2013
Clark County Championship week is the one Camas and Washougal wrestlers and coaches look forward to every year.
For one night only, classifications are thrown out the window and the best wrestler in the county for each weight class is determined. Several wrestlers from these 16 county schools are dreaming of obtaining district, regional and state medals next month. Winning a county championship medal is the first step toward making those dreams come true.
This year's Clark County boys and girls tournaments return to Skyview High School, 1300 N.W. 139th St. in Vancouver. Matches begin Friday at 4 p.m., resume Saturday at 10 a.m. and conclude with the finals Saturday evening.
The Washougal girls are determined to defend their 2012 county team championship. Several Panthers and Camas Papermakers have their hearts set on wrestling in the finals, but it is never an easy road.
