The Talihina Golden Tigers wrestling team will begin postseason play this afternoon at the Class 2A District Duals in Vian. Action is slated to begin approximately 2 p.m.
Besides the Golden Tigers (0-3 in duals this season heading into Monday night's dual at Sequoyah-Tahlequah, which was rescheduled from next Monday) and the host Wolverines, Sequoyah-Tahlequah, Keys (Park Hill), Quinton and Hulbert will be a part of this season's district duals. The team with the best win-loss record after dualing everybody will earn a trip to next month's Class 2A Dual State Tournament.
Talihina Coach Jon Bradberry believes his wrestlers match up well with the other four teams, and could fare pretty well.
â€śI think we match up better with all of them because we've wrestled their athletes in previous tournaments,â€ť he said. â€śWe've had some success against them.â€ť
