Not only will there be a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Jennings County High School wrestling facility this week, the winning tradition of the program will be celebrated.

The public is invited to the event that will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday, March 5, in the JCHS Auxiliary Gymnasium.
There have been only three head coaches in wrestling at JCHS and all three will be in attendance for the groundbreaking ceremony. They are Terry Wetherald, James Harr and, the current coach, Howard Jones

"Well, it's true: Jennings County High School is getting a wrestling room!" Jones exclaimed. "It is not just a wrestling room, we are getting a little more than that. We are getting a state-of-the-art wrestling facility, a facility that will seat close to 1,000 fans, and allow us to host tournaments and dual meets from the elementary school league and up."

After 52 years, the wrestling program will have a place that will no longer require practices to be split, no more putting mats away and then getting them back out before and after basketball games, notes Jones.

"Jennings County Wrestling will finally have a place to call its own," he said.

The wrestling facility will have its own set of locker rooms, storage area and restrooms. Construction on the $4.3 million project will begin this spring with completion expected in time for the 2020-21 school year.

Jones encourages all who can make it to attend Thursday's groundbreaking ceremony.

"We invite all present and former wrestlers, coaches, scorekeepers, everyone that has helped make this day possible to come celebrate this day," Jones added.
