The annual Groundhog Classic and Groundhog Novice youth wrestling tournaments were held last Saturday and Sunday at the Punxsutawney Area High School gymnasium. The tournaments put six mats to nonstop use as more than 560 wrestlers grappled in the events. (Top left photo) Young newcomer Hunter Dobson is taken down in his bout.
