South Walton Hosts 5th Annual Border Wars Wrestling Tournament

SANTA ROSA, Fla. - The high school wrestling season got underway this weekend with the 5th Annual Border Wars at South Walton High School. 

The two day tournament featured 23 different schools. About half of the schools were from Florida; others traveled to Walton County from Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Tennessee. Among the local teams competing were South Walton, Arnold, Wewahitchka, Mosley, and Marianna. 

These tournament are great opportunities for teams to gauge where they stand against outside competition early on in the season. South Walton Athletic Director Phil Tisa says making the tournament competitive is a top priority.  

"You know, we get to see how our kids are fairing. WE get to see some of the other competition that we'll be facing throughout the year, even from teams from other part of the state that come in. It's a good test for us, and it's also a good fundraiser for us to help set ourselves up for the rest of the season," said Tisa.
