The state’s top high school wrestlers will invade St. Paul this week for the State Wrestling Tournament, one of the most chaotic in the winter state tournament season. Xcel Energy Center is the host, and once the team competition commences Thursday morning, it’s non-stop action over eight mats for three days.
For as many as 21 Minnesota football teams, they’ve been practicing for two full weeks now, and all that hard work will be on display Friday night. It’s “Zero Week” in prep football around the state, meaning that high school football is already kicking off officially.
More than a thousand matches took place at the State Wrestling Tournament last weekend at Xcel Energy Center, but most fans were left talking about one after it all wrapped up on Saturday.
The Minnesota state high school wrestling tournament opens Thursday at Xcel Energy Center with a new three-day format.
