In this Feb. 17, 2018 file photo, Southern Columbia’s Gaige Garcia controls Danville’s Zach Zerbe in a 182-pound semifinal bout at the District 4 South Sectional at Southern Columbia High School.

For the second year in a row, the weekend following the turn of the new year is going to be a busy one for area wrestling fans.

Line Mountain, in the first of its two dual meet tournaments, will be hosting five schools from across Pennsylvania and New York, with wrestling beginning at 10 a.m. today.

The New York-based team, Horseheads, enters with the best dual meet record in the tournament at 9-3. The team is led by 132-pound senior Devin Woodworth, who is the only undefeated wrestler in the tournament (20-0). Jacob Scibek, a 152-pound junior, enters with a 19-2 record and 106-pound sophomore Zach Levey has formed an equally impressive 17-2 campaign.

Line Mountain enters with a 2-2 dual meet record. Bethlehem-Freedom (6-3), Bloomsburg (0-3) St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy (0-0) and Mifflinburg (5-3) will also be in attendance.

Southern Columbia will host seven schools during its SoCo Scuffle dual meet tournament — Blue Mountain (5-2), Chambersburg (5-0), Gettysburg (2-1), Honesdale (3-1), Milton (0-3), Pen Argyl (0-5) and Penncrest (3-5). Action begins at 10:30 a.m.

The Tigers enter with a 5-0 record and will look to serve Chambersburg its first dual meet loss of the season after finishing at the top of the team standings of Chambersburg’s MyHOUSE Trojan Wars individual tournament last week.

The SoCo Scuffle is divided into two groups, the gold pool and the black pool, for the first three rounds of competition and then cross-pool matches will take place in rounds four and five. The gold pool will compete in the auxiliary gymnasium at the school and the black pool will battle in the main high school gym.

The gold pool consists of Chambersburg, Gettysburg, Milton and Penncrest and the black pool is Southern Columbia, Honesdale, Pen Argyl and Blue Mountain.
