After a bit of a break it is now time to transition into the Freestyle season for our great sport of wrestling. We will have former, current, and future Iowa wrestlers competing in freestyle tournaments starting this week and throughout the summer.
South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas will host several tournaments this weekend. The Senior U.S. Open for Men’s and Women’s Freestyle and Greco-Roman will be the headliner for a weekend of great wrestling. The U.S. Open for U20, U17, and U15 will be a showcase for future recruits, incoming recruits and college freshmen.
