Greetings from Albany! State Championships Update!

Greetings from beautiful Albany, NY! Seriously? it was beautiful here today? like 70 and sunny? normally it?s a below-freezing blizzard, so we?ll take it!

Cliff and the rest of the Section 1 team are up here and ready to go!


We had a great couple of weeks of State Team practices and I can tell you I think Section 1 is primed to have one of their best showings ever in both Division 1 and Division 2!

Earlier, after we checked in and got settled we headed over to the arena for a quick workout. Cliff looked great! (No surprise!) This kid is ready to go!

Then we took Cliff to get some dinner - obvioulsy at the Victory Cafe! Where else would you go the night before the State Championships!


Now we?re back at the hotel and about to head down to a Section 1 Team Meeting before turning in for the night!I know a lot of you are planning on coming up tomorrow and/or Saturday, so just wanted to get some info out to you!

First of all, you can see the whole tournament schedule here. Ceremonies kick off at 9:30 AM tomorrow. Wrestling at 10 AM. Cliff will probably take the mat sometime between 12:30 and 1 PM.

The venue is Albany?s Times Union Arena located at 51 S Pearl St, Albany, NY 12207.

Tickets are available here.

Full brackets here.

Last but not least, if you can?t make it up to Albany, you can follow Cliff?s tournament on our Twitter Feed.

That?s it for now - gotta run down to this meeting!

Can?t wait to unleash our team on the rest of NY State tomorrow!

Feed the Panther!
