A once in a lifetime opportunity has been given to a pair of Fairbury residents.
Fairbury junior-to-be Seth James was chosen to participate in the Maine-Nebraska Friendship Wrestling Exchange, as a wrestler on the 15-member Nebraska Wrestling Team.
Eighth-year Fairbury head wrestling coach P.J. Smith will be joining Norfolk's Tony Brown and Central City's Darin Garfield, as coaches for the Nebraska Exchange Wrestling Team.
The 27th Annual Maine-Nebraska Wrestling Exchange will take place June 20-28, 2011 with duals in four cities in Maine, including Winslow, Mt. Blue, York, and Bath.
Fifteen wrestlers from across the state will compete as Team Nebraska.
Seth James was honored to be one of the 15 wrestlers chosen for the team.
