The Bethlehem Holiday Wrestling Classic started Friday morning and there were area wrestlers advancing in the winner's bracket all morning.

P'burg led the early rounds in terms of wrestlers winning, putting ten in the quarterfinal round, but other area teams did well early including Northampton, Northern Lehigh, Pen Argyl, and Liberty.  The Quarterfinals are Friday night, the Semifinals begin at 9:30am Saturday and they'll wrestle straight through to try and beat the bulk of the winter storm that's on the way.
