Tournaments scrapped

This wasn’t a good week for Ste. Genevieve wrestling with the Dragons unable to wrestle at all.

Ste. Genevieve was originally scheduled to have a dual against Sullivan at home on Tuesday, Dec. 14 — however, it was postponed until Thursday, Jan. 27, 2022. 

The Dragons didn’t compete at respective weekend tournaments due in part to illnesses. The girls were originally scheduled to compete at Eldon, and the boys in Moberly.
