An outbreak of shigellosis, an infectious disease that usually causes diarrhea and a fever and is transmitted through contaminated food or water, has forced the postponement of today’s Class 2A District Wrestling Tournament.
The tournament, which will still be held at Blaine High School, will be made up Wednesday, with weigh-ins scheduled for 9 a.m. and action beginning at 11 a.m.
“We want to err on the side of caution,” Blaine athletic director Gary Claussen said in a phone interview. “We want to be as safe as we can by postponing it a few days.”Continue Reading Wrestling tournament canceled due to outbreak
