The 52nd annual Morton Invitational, also known as the Bob and Liz Schnarr Invitational, begins at 9 a.m. Saturday and concludes with championship matches at approximately 4 pm. The 13-team field includes area teams Deer Creek-Mackinaw, Knoxville, Peoria High, Notre Dame, Putnam County/Hall and host Morton. Last year’s team champion, LaSalle-Peru, is not in the field this year.
Top individuals include Notre Dame’s unbeaten duo of Tristan Daugherty (15-0 at 126) and Leo Mushinsky (16-0 at 152), both ranked No. 2 in their respective classes.
The 152-pound class could feature a rematch between Mushinsky and No. 5 Nolan Roseman of Rantoul. The two wrestled in the Lincoln Tournament title last weekend, with Mushinsky winning 3-2.
