Laurel head coach Tom PaviaThe weekend snowstorms have not only wreaked havoc on school schedules this week, they have also forced the rescheduling of major post-season wrestling tournaments.

The state dual meet wrestling tournaments, featuring Sussex County schools Laurel and Milford, have been postponed from Wednesday, Feb. 19, to Tuesday, Feb. 25, at Delaware State University.

In addition, the Henlopen Conference wrestling tournament has been rescheduled to Saturday and Sunday at Seaford, with the finals on Sunday.

Laurel and Milford will face each other in the semifinals of the Division II dual meet tournament in a rematch of last week's exciting 33-27 victory that clinched the Henlopen Conference Southern Division title for Laurel.

Laurel, the top seed with a 12-1 record, and Milford, the fourth seed with a 10-3 mark, will square off at 5 p.m.

On Wednesday, Feb. 12, Laurel beat Milford for its first Henlopen South crown in 20 years on a pin by Will Saylor in the night's final match.

Also in the Division II tournament are No. 2 Smyrna (13-2) and No. 3 Hodgson, which is 9-2 overall but has won the Division II championship six years in a row. Laurel defeated Smyrna in a 27-27 tie decided on criteria, while Milford lost to Smyrna. Neither Sussex County team has faced Hodgson.

In the Division I tournament, unbeaten Caesar Rodney is the second seed behind St. Mark's. CR faces No. 3 William Penn in the semifinals, while St. Mark's meets No. 4 Salesianum.

The finals in both divisions will be Tuesday, Feb. 25, at 7 p.m. The $6 tickets cover both rounds.
