Tomorrow morning the state wrestling tournament will get underway over at Century Link Center in South Bossier. More than 900 wrestlers will be competing for state championships. This is a big event which brings a lot of attention not only to the area but to the sport of wrestling. Airline is host school for the 4th straight year and area coaches say their athletes don’t take staying close to home lightly.
Caleb Guidry: You know the exposure that this event brings to our sport is tremendous. The facility here tournament has been a great success over the last three years here.
Chase Cox: Anywhere you’re sitting as a fan you can see every single match. Not to mention all of our wrestlers get to sleep in their own bed they get to get up eat breakfast at home and then we have the ability to have this venue to where people make it a big deal.
