What is perhaps Butte’s busiest weekend begins at 10 a.m. Friday at Butte High School.
The Bulldogs host the Mining City Duals, a two-day wrestling tournament that will feature most of the top wrestlers and wrestling teams in the state.
Butte High will wrestle three duals on Friday. The hope is for them to wrestle five more on Saturday.
The Bulldogs, who placed second at the Capital City Duals last Saturday in Helena, take on Missoula Sentinel at 10 a.m. After battling Columbia Falls at 1 p.m., Butte High will dual Anaconda at 7 p.m.
Kelly Merrick and Ax Henningson went 4-0 in Helena to lead coach Jim Bob Humphrey’s young Bulldogs squad. Kadin Schonsberg went 3-1.
