No more Soddy-Daisy or Ooltewah wrestlers but the competition figures to be just as stiff in the Region 2-A/AA tournament Friday and Saturday at Hixson.

All high school sporting events in the Chattanooga area were called off because of Tuesday's snowstorm, creating more scheduling problems on top of those caused previously by unusually cold temperatures.

The Signal Mountain wrestling team is coming off a disappointing finish in the East Hamilton Invitational. The program still is looking for its first tournament championship after finishing second to Dalton.
