Schuylkill League Team Wrestling Championships Cancelled for 2021

On Thursday morning, the Schuylkill League announced that it would be cancelling the 2021 Team Wrestling Championships.

The league said in a statement, "In an effort to make sure our Schuylkill League wrestlers are provided with the best situation possible this season, the league has decided in a majority vote by league wrestling schools to cancel the league wrestling championships for the 2021 season. There were many factors that went into this tough decision, with the health and safety of our student athletes being the main consideration. "

The team championships were scheduled for the week of February 8th, which would have consisted of the top two teams in each division qualifying for the team league championships and then wrestling in a semi-final and final format to declare the team league champion. 

The league say that the current plan in place will allow for the teams to wrestle their complete league schedule. For the 2020-2021 season, the Division 1 Champion and the Division 2 Champion will be declared Co-Champions.
