The London wrestling team will open its doors to a handful of teams at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7, for the annual Harry Steel Invitational.
The event will be the marquee home event on the schedule this season, and will feature the host team along with Hilliard Davidson, New Lexington, Circleville, Waynesville and Dayton Ponitz Tech in a dual match setup.
“We look forward to having good competition coming in,” Red Raiders coach Dave Kennedy said. “Some teams have home tournaments and bring in competition that will guarantee them a first or second place.
“But I’ve always made this tough. I want our guys to have to go out and earn it. Just because you’re at home shouldn’t mean it’s going to be easy.”
One thing that will help the Red Raiders in the dual meet event is the fact that the squad is expected to fill every weight class which will allow it to avoid giving away crucial points.
