Both the Burlington and Catholic Central wrestling squads will be heavily represented at this weekend’s WIAA Individual State Wrestling tournament.

Last Saturday at the Racine Park Invite, 10 of 14 Demons finished in top two, which qualifies them for the three-day wrestling pinnacle, which takes place at the Kohl Center in Madison, 601 W. Dayton St.

Preliminary matches begin at 3 p.m. Thursday, with action continuing all day Friday and Saturday, culminating with the championship round Saturday at 5:30 p.m., which will be televised live on Fox Sports Wisconsin.
