Iowa Wrestling fans and all Hawkeye fans will have a lot to follow over what looks to be the biggest sports weekend of the entire year.

The Iowa Women’s Wrestling team will be at the Missouri Valley College Open in Marshall, Missouri on Friday and Saturday. Wrestling began at Noon today with prelims through quarterfinals. Wrestling begins on Saturday at 9 AM with the finals scheduled for 1:30. All times listed here are CST.

The entire tournament will be live streamed by FloWrestling on their premium service. Results will also be available on TrackWrestling.

On Thursday the new NWCA NCAA Women’s College Wrestling Rankings found Iowa at #1 in the country. Iowa now has a wrestler ranked at all ten weights. What a season we have ahead of us watching this new program.

On Saturday five members of the Hawkeye Wrestling Club will be competing at the Bill Farrell Memorial Invitational in New York City. The HWC wrestlers will be competing for Titan Mercury Wrestling Club (TMWC).

Spencer Lee (57 kg), Austin DeSanto (65 kg), Pat Lugo (65 kg), Alex Marinelli (74 kg) and Jacob Warner (97 kg) will be competing.

This is always a big tournament and more so with the Olympics next year.

The Men’s Freestyle will be on Saturday with a preliminary round at 9 AM CST and the Medal Matches at 4 PM CST.

FloWrestling will have all of the wrestling on their premium live stream service.

With all of the wrestling you can add in the Iowa-Illinois football game at 2:30 Saturday afternoon. Carver-Hawkeye Arena will be busy on Sunday. After the Iowa-Oregon State dual meet the Women’s Basketball team will host Drake at 6 PM.
