BEK Sports will televise State Wrestling Tourney

Wrestling. It’s the ultimate boys sport. From the time a boy can crawl, he’s ready to wrestle. There’s excitement brewing in the wrestling arena for the state qualifying teams and wrestlers who are gearing up to participate in the 2013 state competitions this month. Soon young men from across the state will be competing for state titles in “boys being boys” wrestling, and BEK Sports will be there to cover the action.

For the fifth consecutive year, BEK Sports will televise the State Wrestling Tournament. It’s live coverage from the FargoDome, Feb. 14-16, 2013. The State Class “A” and the State Class “B” tournaments will be televised simultaneously. That’s two full channels of mat-side wrestling with heartpounding action.

State wrestling coverage begins on Thurs., Feb. 14 at 7 p.m. with an end-of-day wrap-up show, including interviews with select coaches.

Coverage of the Dual Finals action begins at 7 p.m. on Fri., Feb. 15.

Day three is complete coverage of the Individual Finals beginning at 2:45 p.m. on Sat., Feb. 16. (All times are Central Standard Time.)

BEK Sports and its tournament “partners” are anxious to bring the North Dakota State Wrestling Tournament live to those who are unable to attend the matches. The tournament will be delivered to thousands of households across the state.

The program is produced by the BEK Sports Network and exists through a partnership between various North Dakota Telecommunications cooperatives and companies. BEK Sports is produced by an affiliation with, and assistance from local students, schools, educators, parents and volunteers providing a unique training opportunity. BEK Sports provides technology education and equipment to students and people of the region to produce live, local high school sports for BEK Sports.

BEK Sports is a subsidiary of BEK Communications Cooperative, a leader in providing residential communications services in south-central North Dakota since 1952. More information about BEK Sports can be found at www.beksports.com.
