Wrestling: Jan. 8, 2014, edition

The Blissfield wrestling team hit the road for the Dave Elliott Memorial Invitational in Clinton. Despite a strong start, the Royals finished in ninth place, with Manchester taking the top spot for the tournament.

While the Royals were coming off the holiday and break and attempting to shake off the rust as a team, several individual wrestlers for Blissfield had no trouble putting the competition on ice.
