LHSAA Wrestling Tournament coming back to Bossier

For the 2nd year in a row the Louisiana State Wrestling Tournament is taking place right here in Shreveport Bossier.
 
Last year several area wrestlers took home state championships, including Airline's Christian Walden.
He says it makes it just a little more special to be able to do it in front of friends and family.
 
Christian Walden:
"Definitely, with my sophomore year a lot of my friends and family weren't able to come see me but with it being so close there's a lot more people I know there and it felt a lot more at home."
 
John Walden:
"It means a lot to us to have family and friends, a lot of people that wouldn't have been able to travel to New Orleans area. It gives them access to the arena. It's big having home crowd advantage I guess you'd say."
