Cardinal Newman hosts SCISA mat finals

The SCISA state wrestling championship will be determined Saturday at Cardinal Newman.

Semifinal matches pitting the heavily favored, host Cardinals against St. Joseph’s and Heathwood Hall vs. Hammond begin at 11 a.m. The championship bout will follow the semifinals.

Cardinal Newman pinned four-time defending champion Hammond by a convincing 66-6 score a few weeks ago and is in line to claim its first significant wrestling championship.
