In the latest WrestlingTexas.com rankings, 13 wrestlers from Frisco ISD are in the top 10 in the state in their weight classes and several more are close to those elite spots. That shows how good the wrestling is in Frisco ISD, and that’s a good reason why the District 8-5A tournament Friday and Saturday should be very exciting.
The 10 FISD high schools are joined in District 8-5A by two other strong programs: The Colony and Whitesboro. They’ll all be competing at Frisco High School for District titles and spots in the 5A Region II tournament the following weekend.
Competition will begin at 4 p.m. Friday with the boys brackets through the semifinals, along with consolation matches. Wrestling will resume at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday with the girls quarterfinals, and the boys competition will follow.
The matches will be on a rolling schedule, meaning the brackets could finish more quickly depending on the length of matches. The boys finals Saturday are expected to start at 1 p.m. and the girls at 3 p.m. The awards ceremony will start after all matches are complete.
Fans can keep up with the tournaments on trackwrestling.com.
Come out and cheer on some of the state’s top wrestlers!
