Two wrestling events in Proctor over the weekend aimed to promote the sport among younger athletes.

North Shore Wrestling put on the first-ever North Shore Classic Sunday at Proctor High School. It came one day after the North Shore Open.

Proctor High School Wrestling Coach Dave McNamee said the goal is to get the younger generation into wrestling. McNamee said support for the sport is slim in the Arrowhead region.

"Around here we're really working hard to get that established," he said. "And it's great to have the other neighboring programs come in from other places and help us to establish that. Yesterday we had 245 kids packed in this gym, and that was great to see. Because that means wrestling is growing in our area."

McNamee said he hopes this event will become a tradition. To him, the kids in attendance represent the future of the area high school programs.
