FULTON — Six Fulton varsity wrestlers will compete this weekend in the Journeymen/Rudis New York State Wrestling Championships.
The event will be held Friday and Saturday, April 2-3, at Spooky Nook Sports in Manheim, Pennsylvania.
With the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting the traditional scholastic season in New York, Journeymen Wrestling created a non-sanctioned single-division high school state championship tournament.
Fulton participants will include senior Dominick Hofmann at 120 pounds; sophomore Walter Crofoot at 145, senior Cuinn Burlingham at 152, senior Sam May at 160, junior Aiden Scaringi at 160, and senior Matt Woodworth at 195.
Also among the Section III participants will be freshman Jack Lamson (120 pounds) from Cato/Hannibal, and senior Holt Reed (152 pounds) from Phoenix.
The tournament will feature 450 competitors from 13 sections and ASIS in the state meeting underlying criteria to compete. There are 16 weight classes ranging from 99 pounds to 285 pounds.
It is a single-division competition, meaning D-1 (large school) and D-2 (small school) competitors will participate in the same bracket.
