PREP WRESTLING: TikTok threat or no, the CMR Holiday Classic is a GO

·1 min read

The TikTok challenge encouraging people on Friday to commit violence inside public schools has already done some damage.

Whether it is a sick joke or not, some schools have opted to shut down their campuses for the entire day on Friday.

As for the Holiday Wrestling Classic at Charles M. Russell High School slated to start Friday morning, coach Aaron Jensen said the tournament is a GO.

"Unless there is a credible threat, the tournament will go on," Jensen told the Tribune Thursday afternoon.

Thursday night's duals at the Great Falls High Old Gym, however, were canceled Thursday afternoon as neither Bozeman High or Bozeman Gallatin could secure bus transportation to Great Falls.

No less than 51 wrestling teams - boys and girls wrestling teams, in fact - will face off Friday morning at 11 at the Russell Fieldhouse to begin the two-day event.

And there will be a girls' portion of the tournament, as well: "The girls' tourney will run Saturday, right alongside the boys tournament," Jensen said.

Saturday's action starts an hour earlier, at 10 a.m., with the placing rounds (including the championship round) for the boys' and girls' portions kicking off at 3 p.m.
