There are a couple of wrestling tournaments in Randolph County set for Saturday.
Uwharrie Charter Academy will hold the Wounded Warrior Challenge.
The UCA event will offer free admission to veterans. Arrangements have been made for veterans from the Wounded Warrior Project to be present.
During a pause in the competition, a recognition ceremony will be held for veterans.
Champions in each weight class will receive a custom Wounded Warrior singlet from MyHouse, which makes sports gear.
Also, the Wheatmore Warriors Duals will be held. Randleman and host school Wheatmore will be among the in-county entrants for that tournament.
The season began last week in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association for those schools without football programs, meaning Uwharrie Charter Academy was in action.
It was a good start for the Eagles.
On the girls’ side, Gabi Greene’s 18 points propelled a 68-39 victory against Clover Garden.
For the boys, UCA topped Clover Garden 76-22 behind 20 points from Jordan Harrison and 18 points from Alijah Baker.
Next week, all NCHSAA teams will be eligible to begin basketball competition.
