Ocean City's youth wrestling tournament is now in its third year.
While high school wrestlers were fighting their way to state championships on Sunday in Atlantic City, wrestlers from kindergarten through eighth grade from four different states were competing at Ocean City's annual tournament held at Ocean City High School.
