Wrestling

The high school wrestling season resumed after a suspension earlier this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Homer High School athletic director Chris Perk, COVID-19 safety practices for athletes include wearing masks during practices and COVID-19 rapid testing twice a week. At meets, athletes may compete without masks. The number of visitors per athlete vary according to school. Mariner spectators who want to be on the guest list for home and away games should contact Homer High School at 907-235-8186.

The Mariners competed against Soldotna on Saturday at Soldotna High School. No team scores were kept as the teams matched up wrestlers.
