OXFORD – The second-longest-running high school wrestling tournament in New York State will mark its golden anniversary Nov. 30-Dec. 1.
The Clyde Cole Wrestling Tournament, co-sponsored by the Oxford Rotary Club and Oxford Academy, reaches 50 years in less than two weeks.
The two-day tournament, long on memories, is inviting all former champions, referees, and tournament volunteers to a social gathering the eve of the tourney, Thursday, Nov. 29 from 6-8 p.m. at the Oxford American Legion on South Washington Ave.
“We have lot of photos and a slide show we will run from past years of the tournament,” said Terry Stark, representing the Oxford Rotary. “We also intend to run the slide show on a loop during the tournament. It’s a social gathering and a celebration for people to share their stories of the tournament.”
