Shelton wrestling coach Bill Maloney believed that wrestling had a chance this winter prior to the CIAC ruling with the Department of Public Health that wrestling is a high-risk sport during this COVID-19 pandemic.
“Wrestling coaches presented to the CIAC what we thought was good mitigation to their concerns -- limiting exposure, proper tracking. We thought we had done a good job,” Maloney said. “It’s tough. I feel bad for the kids, especially the combo football-wrestlers that lost out on two sports.”
