Moffat County wrestling dual postponed
A reschedule date for the Moffat County wrestling team’s dual at Grand Valley still is being sought.
The two schools are working to find another date for the match which originally was set for Dec. 12, but no make-up time has been set yet. It is possible the dual could be canceled. Moffat County is looking to schedule so the team would travel to Parachute and wrestle Grand Valley, then have reduced traveling to Grand Junction for more matches the following day.
The team will wrestle in Junction on Saturday at the Warrior Classic. It also has a dual at Rifle on Jan. 25.
