IAC WRESTLING: LONGTIME MIKE WATSON INVITATIONAL AT WATKINS GLEN DISCONTINUED (2018-07-31)
Valley Sports Report WATKINS GLEN — For years one of the top wrestling tournaments in Section IV, the Mike Watson Invitational, which was normally held the second weekend in January, has been discontinued.
A school official cites lack of numbers in the Watkins Glen wrestling program as the major reason for the end of the tournament.
The tournament was previously known as the Watkins Glen Invitational. It was renamed in 2001 for Mike Watson, a longtime and popular wrestling coach at Watkins Glen who died at age 52 in a fall from a ravine in Hector.
