HWC members Cory Clark, Brandon Sorensen, Sammy Brooks, and Mikaela Beck will be in action this weekend.  The Grand Prix de France Henri Deglane will be in Nice, France on February 1-2. HWC Head Coach Mark Perry will make the trip with the team to the tournament.

The Deglane will have competition in mens and womens freestyle and Greco-Roman with competitors from around the world.  Beck will compete when the action begins at 3:30 AM CST on Friday, February 1. Clark, Sorensen, and Brooks will compete on Saturday beginning at 3:30 AM CST.  I have yet to find any streaming that may be available for this event. I will keep you posted.

The Cerro Pelado will take place in Havana, Cuba on Feb 15-23.  The HWC roster for that event has not been set at this time. I will keep you up to date with a roster as soon as it is available.

Thomas Gilman announced in an interview with UWW after the Yarygin that he would be competing in Bulgaria in February.  That would be the Dan Kolov-Nikola Petrov on February 28-March 3. This tournament is in the Ranking Series that aids in setting up seeds for the 2019 World Freestyle Championships.  I will keep you up to date on that competition.

I will be following the HWC for results of these tournaments on my Iowa Wrestling Fan Blog and Podcast, Twitter, Facebook, and Hawkeye Report.
