Herpes outbreak puts Eastmont wrestling in doubt

EAST WENATCHEE -- The Eastmont vs. Southridge wrestling match scheduled for this week has been postponed, and Eastmont's season has been put on hold indefinitely.

The Wenatchee World reported Monday that the East Wenatchee school has identified the skin irritation that sidelined the Wildcats last week as herpes simplex virus 1.

Eastmont earlier postponed a match with Kennewick.

Makeup dates have not been announced and may not be possible with the district tournament scheduled for Feb. 4-5.
