Hello wrestling fans. Follow all of the great action as Warren Hills hosts High Point, Howell and Timber Creek on Saturday starting at 10 a.m. Open Mike will keep you abreast of all the great action from one of the state's best quads this season.

Wrestling starts at 10 a.m.

Here is the schedule of matches:

Hey everyone, thanks for logging on. We're about 18 minutes away from the first whistle.
