Norris visits the Nebraska City gym for a girls' and boys' doubleheader on Friday. The Pioneer boys' team is currently 3-10 on the season, while the girls' team has a record of 1-13.
Wrestling action begins Saturday morning at Gretna. The site had been noted on Nebraska City schedules as being Elkhorn South, but has since been confirmed for Gretna.
The Pioneer wrestlers, winners of five tournaments this year, will be looking to break a long conference tourney drought on Saturday after having dominated in the conference dual tournament earlier in January.
