The 2017 New York State Section IV Wrestling Championships are coming to the Corning region.
In February, for the first time since 2004, the tournament will not be held at Binghamton’s Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena. Corning is set to host the Division I tournament while Watkins Glen will be the site of the Division II event.
Corning Athletic Director Bill Pierce spoke with 18 Sports about the big nature of the events coming to the area. The area’s top high school wrestlers will have their opportunity to win in their own backyard and potentially wrestle in states.
The Division I wrestling event date is Saturday, February 11th while Division II will be Friday February 10th and 11th in Watkins Glen. 18 Sports will have plenty more in the coming months on the event and the Twin Tiers high school wrestling scene.
