River City Rumble tonight

Here’s a reminder that Greater Bangor’s four full wrestling teams will battle for local bragging rights Wednesday evening at Brewer High School.

The Witches will host Hermon, Old Town and John Bapst of Bangor in the fourth annual River City Rumble, a series of dual meets to be held on two mats at the school’s gymnasium.

One of the four teams will become the first to win more than one Rumble. Brewer is the defending champion, while John Bapst won in 2008 and Hermon was the inaugural champion in 2007.

The River City Rumble is a final test for the teams before they head off to conference championship meets Saturday. Brewer will compete in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference championships at Cony High School of Augusta, while Hermon, Old Town and John Bapst will participate in the Penobscot Valley Conference meet to be held at Mattanawcook Academy in Lincoln.
