It was a big weekend for youthful competition in Imperial last weekend as local youth organizations hosted both a kids’ wrestling tourney Friday night and a grade 4-6 basketball tournament on Saturday. Three gyms were filled in all, starting, above, with Friday’s wrestling tourney that drew 219 youngsters eighth grade and younger. An overflow crowd surrounds the mats as first matches get underway.
