Wrestlers from across Western Alaska hit the mats in Dillingham

The regional tournament features 20+ schools, 100+ wrestlers, the first all-girls bracket hosted in Dillingham, and live broadcasting of the day's events.

More than twenty schools sent competitors, from Unalaska and King Cove to the south, and on up to Dillingham’s major rival Bethel and some of its surrounding villages in the YK-Delta region.

As action continues through the afternoon, fans can follow along even from afar. The matches will be live streamed online through dlgsd.org, and live score updates, team information, and brackets can be found at trackwrestling.com.

Semi-finals will begin after senior recognition at 1:30, and the award ceremony is scheduled for 10:30 p.m.
