After careful consideration, the Southern Connecticut Conference is cancelling its Wrestling Championship Meet (which had been scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 13).

With the State of CT still in a “state of emergency,” schools not in session on Monday and possibly Tuesday, as well as our coaches’ overall concern about the student-athletes’ welfare with the SCC’s being too close to the State Tournaments, it was in our best interest to cancel the tournament.
