The Wakefield Trojan junior high wrestling team started their season on the mats with an invitational at Wayne on Saturday, Nov. 5, joining 12 other teams for a packed-house event.

The meet was won by Norfolk Junior High with 233 team points, Schuyler was second with 225, Battle Creek third with 200.5, Pierce and Summerland rounding out the top five.
