The WPIAL team wrestling regular season is down to the final week.

Section matches are set to conclude on Wednesday, Jan. 15.

The top three teams from each sub-section qualify for the section tournaments.

The district team sectionals are scheduled for the following Wednesday, Jan. 22.

The top teams in each of the two sub-sections face the runners-up in the opposing sub-section with the two winners then doing battle for the section championship.

Meanwhile, the two third-place finishers in each sub-section face off to determine the fifth qualifier from that section that will move on to the WPIAL playoffs.
