What to watch for Saturday

1. Wrestling - Multiple invitationals

There are a pair of notable tournaments on today's schedule.

The Niagara Frontier Wrestling Officials Association Invitational at NCCC was slated to start on Friday and finish up Saturday, but the whole tournament will now be played out today due to yesterday's school cancellations. Wrestling begins at 9:30 a.m.

Elsewhere, thirteen teams are scheduled to compete at the 25th Ripley Invitational hosted by Chautauqua Lake. Wrestling begins at 9 a.m.

Undefeated West Seneca East (7-0, 2-0) welcomes Williamsville East (6-2, 1-1) for an ECIC II matchup. The Indians have a pair of league wins over Sweet Home and Hamburg. The Flames, who started the year 4-0, beat Starpoint and lost to No. 2 large school Williamsville South in league play so far.
