Weather Forces Changes To Section 8AAA Team Tourney

With bad weather forecasted for the Moorhead area closing school on Wednesday, the Section 8AAA wrestling team tournament has been altered to a one-day, one-location event due to the inability for the Spuds to compete in Wednesday’s scheduled quarterfinals.

The change means that the quarterfinal matches that were to be hosted by high seeds on Wednesday evening–including #2 Bemidji hosting #7 Sauk Rapids-Rice at the BHS Fieldhouse–will now be added to the scheduled matches for Friday at Sauk Rapids-Rice High School. The Friday matches were previously to only feature the semifinal and championship rounds of the team tournament.

Friday’s new schedule is now confirmed. Quarterfinal matches will be at 4pm, with the semifinals to follow at 6pm and the championship slated for 7:30.

Bemidji is defending its Section 8AAA title from last season, as the Jacks defeated Rocori and Brainerd on their way to a 39-20 victory over Willmar in the championship.

All Bemidji matches will be aired on the Lumberjack Radio Network on KBUN-FM 104.5 and KBUN1 online beginning 15 minutes prior to the first match.
