There is no varsity match this week, but the Green and JV teams will compete in two events each.
"With so many of our wrestlers out of the lineup recently for a variety of reasons, all except Boysza and Burger are available for both of the Green team events," coach Dick Bliss reported.
AHS will travel to Hubbard tonight (Jan. 16) for a 6 p.m. triangular, and on Jan. 18 the Green team will go to Wickliffe for matches against the Blue Devils and Willoughby South.
The JVs will be at Nordonia on Jan. 19 at 9:30 a.m., then will go to the Spire Center in Geneva on Jan. 21 for the Ron Alexander tourney sponsored by the Greater Cleveland Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association.
