Silver Foxes Invitational on tap this weekend

The annual Silver Foxes Invitational wrestling tournament runs on Friday and Saturday at Dutch Fork. Action begins Friday at 6 p.m. and the full-day slate on Saturday starts at 9 a.m.

The 11-team field boasts a heavy influx of Midlands entries. Beaufort and Battery Creek are the only teams entered from outside the area. In addition to host Dutch Fork, the Midlands contingent includes Airport, Brookland-Cayce, Chapin, Columbia, Dreher, Ridge View, Spring Valley and Swansea.

The tournament will conclude with third- and first-place championship matches. But in the unusual SFI format, wrestlers will advance to the bracket phase of the tournament based on round-robin pool results.
