Boys Varsity Wrestling
The Columbus North wrestling team has withdrawn from the Old Capitol City Classic and New Palestine Invitational events on Saturday (Jan. 9).
Corydon Central is the host for the Old Capitol City Classic and New Palestine is the host of its invitational. Columbus North, which had intended to send its varsity wrestlers to Corydon and its JV wrestlers to New Palestine, may not take part in either event because both schools are in counties that were in “red” in the weekly COVID color dashboard released Wednesday (Jan. 6) by the Indiana State Department of Health. Corydon Central is in Harrison County and New Palestine is in Hancock County.
By BCSC policy, Columbus North teams are not permitted to travel to schools in a county that is in “red” nor my Columbus North host a school from a county that is in “red.”
Columbus North is scheduled to host Jennings County at 7 p.m. Tuesday (Jan. 12) in a dual meet. Jennings County is in “orange” in the latest ISDH listing, so that meet should be held as scheduled.
If Columbus North is able to be a last-minute entry for another event for Saturday (Jan. 9), this article will be updated.
