Petersburg High School’s wrestling team opened their season at home last weekend, hosting teams from around Southeast. Wrestlers paired off in a round-robin style competition Friday and Saturday. Joe Viechnicki spoke with coach Dan Van Swearingen about the first matches of the new season.

The team is not wrestling this weekend and next goes to Ketchikan at the end of the month. The Vikings are fund raising Saturday, October 21 selling firewood in the parking lot behind the community pool starting at 12:30 p.m.
