The semifinals will start at noon and there will be consolation matches throughout the day. The third/fourth and fifth/sixth bouts will begin at 4 p.m., with the finals slated for a 6:30 p.m. start.
“It was an exciting first day,” said Peru co-head coach Mike Hogan. “We got started late because a couple of teams had trouble getting here because of the weather.
“This was the latest we’ve finished on a Friday night.”
The host Indians lead the event with 85 points, followed by Dolgeville with 62.5, Saranac with 55, Hudson with 54 and Massena rounding out the top five with 47.5.
Peru has nine wrestlers in the semifinals, while Dolgeville has seven and Saranac six. AuSable Valley, the third CVAC team entered, had two of its matmen advance into the semifinals.
Anything can still happen.
“We’ll know more after the semifinals,” said Hogan. “Dolgeville, Saranac and Hudson are all wrestling tough.”
