Middle school wrestlers from around southern Southeast Alaska will participate in the annual Kurt Kuehl Invitational this week at Schoenbar Middle School.
Schools from Craig, Hydaburg, Metlakatla, Klawock, Wrangell, Petersburg and Sitka are expected to participate, according to Schoenbar head coach Matt Hamilton
Events will start with a dual meet from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday at the Schoenbar gym.
The first round of the double-elimination invitational will start at about 4:30 p.m. on Friday, according to Hamilton. The meet will resume at 10 a.m. Saturday, and the finals are scheduled to start at 4 p.m. Saturday.
