Change always comes with a breath of contention and wrestling coaches have their opinions on and off the record of the news last week of the newly formatted District 11 AAA and AA team tournaments.

With 12-teams qualifying in both brackets, nobody has an issue with a larger wrestling party to give more teams an opportunity to compete for postseason opportunities.

Marian beats C-E for first win

A stout defense and an explosive offense propelled Marian to a 28-13 non-league win over visiting Conwell-Egan Catholic Saturday afternoon.

The win puts the Colts (1-3) back on track after getting off to a slow start to begin the season.

"We were physical and we made plays today," said Marian coach Stan Dakosty. "In our first three games of the season, I though we left too many plays on the field.

"We were really physical and controlled the line of scrimmage today. Our kids just battled and I'm really proud of them."
