The Kenai Peninsula is represented by only two wrestling teams in the Northern Lights Conference — Kenai Central and Soldotna.
But, when dealing with such schools like Colony, Kodiak and Wasilla, it’s not as easy as it looks to place a wrestler in the top five at conference in order to lock up a state berth.
The Class 4A state high school wrestling tournament is scheduled for Feb. 7 and 8 at Bartlett High School in Anchorage. That only leaves about 10 weeks for athletes to work up their strength and technique and be ready to peak at the right time.
