State wrestling championships start today

A Chenango County record 10 wrestlers will take to the mat today between 10 and 10:30 a.m. at the Times Union Center in Albany for the New York State Public High School Wrestling Championships.



B-G/Afton takes four to the event to lead all area teams including champions Danny Gormley (96), Justin Davy (130), Kris Stafford (160), and at-large wild-card selection, Ben Mumbulo (189).
