One week before the AIA wrestling state championships are due to arrive at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, the sport's postseason has been postponed.

The AIA announced Friday that a number of wrestlers have contracted a skin infection, and as a precautionary measure, Saturday's wrestling sectional tournaments have been postponed until further notice.

Prescott and Bradshaw Mountain high schools were to compete Saturday in the Division 2 Section 4 event at Glendale Ironwood High School, while Chino Valley was to wrestle in the Division 3 Section 3 tournament at Winslow High School.

The AIA noted that none of the reported illnesses were MRSA.

"It is the recommendation of the AIA Sports Medicine Advisory Committee to follow the USA wrestling and CDC guidelines regarding infectious disease," the AIA's Jose Garcia wrote in an AIA statement Friday. "Again, this is not determined to be MRSA; however, we are treating them with extra precautions to prevent further skin infections, postponing competition, and encourage athletes that have a suspicious skin lesion to consult with their physician and seek treatment before exposing themselves to other people."

The AIA anticipates it will announce postponement information by Monday, up to and including any possible changes for next week's state championships, which run Feb. 13-15 at Tim's Toyota Center.
