If the Roselle Park Wrestling Team wins tomorrow night – January 17th – against the Cranford Cougars, it will be one meet away from 1,000 wins.
Only a handful of high school wrestling teams throughout history have held such an honor and the Roselle Park Panthers will have the opportunity Friday night to join the 1,000-win club at home against the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Raiders.
Tomorrow night’s meet will be in the Roselle Park High School Ralph T. ‘Pug’ Williams gymnasium starting at 7 o’clock at night.
Friday night’s meet was originally scheduled to take place in Scotch Plains but – due to the possibility of Roselle Park’s 1,000th win – arrangements were made to have the meet at home.
Residents are welcome to both meets.
Roselle Park High School is located at 185 West Webster Avenue.
