The newly-formed Ashland Junior Grizzlies Youth Wrestling program is 55 kids strong two weeks after holding its first practice Oct. 17. The club meets two or three times a week at the Ashland High School wrestling room, and members can sign up for optional competitions held every weekend at neighboring schools. 

The Junior Grizzlies consist of youth wrestlers in kindergarten through eighth grade. It costs $60 to join the program, and the season runs from October through the end of January. For more information, email or visit the club's Facebook page, @ashlandwrestling.
