Warren Hills wrestlers lead area with 6 No. 1 district seeds

Area wrestlers are well-represented as top seeds around the NJSIAA district tournaments this weekend.

23 local wrestlers are No. 1 seeds in five districts scattered over north and central New Jersey.

In the past, Warren County teams all were in District 1 and Hunterdon County teams in District 17. An NJSIAA reshuffle of the postseason changed all that, and now area teams are in seven different districts. For area top seeds in District 9 at Phillipsburg, click here.
