Berlin, North Star wrestlers seek tests at Mid-Winter Mayhem Tournament

In the past week, Berlin and North Star have each gotten a taste of how the pandemic-delayed wrestling season will look. On Saturday, they should each get a steady diet of matches in the Mid-Winter Mayhem tournament at Monroeville Convention Center.

Saturday’s event, which is actually two separate tournaments with two pools in each, features more than two dozen schools and will provide a much different challenge. A least three PIAA champions and a pair of National Prep champions are expected to compete.

Division 1 of the event begins at 9a.m. Berlin and North Star are each in Division 2, which is set to start at 2 p.m.

Students, teachers reflect on riot

Witnessing the U.S. Capitol stormed and seized by President Donald Trump’s supporters Wednesday left North Star sophomore Mariellen Mish confused and questioning how such an event could happen.

“How did a simple rally turn this violent?” she said. Mish wasn’t aware of the situation until she returned home from school and saw her social media feed was dominated by news of the riot.

Images of Trump supporters toting flags, looting and taking photos from inside the rooms of the Capitol were plastered across every media platform for most of Wednesday as the event played out and authorities took back control.

Mish said it was “absolutely insane” to see how “violent protestors easily tore down fencing and made it inside.” At school Thursday, students and several others she encountered discussed the matter. “Everyone seems to be in shock of how far the protest went,” Mish said. Reflecting on the incident, she fears this could be “the beginning of something that can turn into an even worse event.”
