Twin Tiers Takedown update on the local holiday high school wrestling scene.
Canisteo-Greenwood took home the Dick Vincent Duels in Letchworth, a two day event with some of the best teams in the region. Also on Thursday, the annual Windsor Christmas Tournament kicked off with plenty of local top talent advancing to the semis.
Horseheads is currently in third place in the team standings with five wrestlers going to the semis. Tioga also has five wrestlers in the same round, Corning has four wrestlers and Elmira has two. Below, a complete list of the wrestlers in the semis, which start in Windsor at 10 am. Finals begin at 4 pm.
Horseheads – Zach Levey 106-pounds, Devin Woodworth 126-pounds, Jake Scibek 132-pounds, Jesse Johnson 145-pounds and Chris Eames 170-pounds.
Tioga – Mason Welch 99-pounds, John Worthing 113-pounds, Austin Lamb 138-pounds, Trey Floyd 195-pounds, and Stephen Taylor 285-pounds.

A big time match to watch for is at 113-pounds, NYS place-winner John Worthing of Tioga (16-1) versus unbeaten Drew Witham of Corning (15-0). The two lightweights could steal the show in Windsor in a match that is championship round caliber. Worthing is a two-time state placer while Witham is a newcomer to Section IV and is looking to pull the upset.
