The annual Paonia Summer Duals wrestling camp will be held June 11 and 12 at Paonia High School.

Upward of 400 wrestlers compete in the annual duals. Many of them, along with coaches and families, camp out on school grounds. Wrestlers will begin arriving the evening of Friday, June 10, with matches beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday, June 11 and running through Sunday afternoon. Matches will be held in both the high school and junior high school gymnasiums. Teams can expect upward of 10 or more matches over the period of the two-day camp.

The public is invited to stop in at any time during the two-day event, which generates upward of 1,800 matches, attracts wrestlers from all four Delta County schools, throughout the state and from as far away as Arizona and Wyoming. Competition will include some of the best middle school and high school teams in the region.

"We're looking forward to it," said organizer and Paonia head coach Andy Pipher. "Should be a good time."
