The district is encouraging members of the community to create signs, honk, wave and support the wrestlers as they head to the championship.

The lineup will begin at 7:50 a.m. at MCHS before starting at 8 a.m.

The escort will go south on Sligo Street, Seventh Street to Broadway, East Main Street, through downtown and then off to Denver.

The wrestling championships will begin on Thursday, Feb. 15.
