After a one-day delay because of snow in the area, the Catawba Valley Classic will begin today at Hickory High School and Catawba Valley Community College.
Both the boy's and girl's tournaments were postponed until Tuesday because of heavy snow received during the Christmas holiday.
Despite the move, start times for games will remain the same. Action in the girl's tournament starts at 4 p.m. at Hickory High School when No. 4 Fred T. Foard (5-3) takes on No. 5 Alexander Central (4-4).
What has been a strong season already for the Newton-Conover wrestling squad will continue Thursday when they compete at the all-day East Burke Duals.
The Red Devils are coming off of an impressive 5-0 record from last Thursday's nine-team home tournament â€“ the Red Devil Duals â€“ despite starting five freshmen. The squad picked up victories against RS Central (49-16), Hibriten (69-6), Challenger (82-0) and Enka (49-18).
