Incoming Iowa Wrestling recruits will face some very good competition this weekend.  Zach Glazier, Patrick Kennedy, and Ryan Sokol will all be at the Minnesota Christmas Tournament on Friday and Saturday, December 14-15.  The two-day tournament at the RCTC Fieldhouse will include 40 teams and very tough competition.

Among the 40 schools entered is Shakopee, Apple Valley, and Owatonna that are ranked 1-2-3 in 3A in Minnesota.  Kasson-Mantorville (Kennedy’s HS) and Simley (Sokol’s HS) are ranked 1-2 in 2A in Minnesota. This tournament will provide a lot of state and even some national ranked competition at nearly every weight.

Abe Assad has a home dual meet on Friday and three home duals on Saturday.   

Cullan and Colby Schriever will be at the Battle of Waterloo on Friday and Saturday, December 14-15.

I am especially looking forward to how our recruits do at the Minnesota Christmas Tournament this weekend.  That is some tough competition.
