There are over 100 nationally ranked wrestlers competing from 21 states: Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Missouri, Utah, California, Virginia, Hawaii, Florida, Illinois, Colorado, Maryland, West Virginia, Texas, Oregon, Delaware, New York, North Carolina, Nebraska, and Kentucky. 13 of the top 20 teams (27 of the top 50) in the nation, according to the USAToday National Pre-Season Rankings, will be competing. Only the best wrestlers in the nation survive this tournament by standing on the podium in the top 8 at the end. Many individuals are invited to compete in this tournament, but to be invited as a complete team is a huge honor in itself. You should be able to follow along at http://walshjesuitironman.com/ (the 2018 Program is there) with wrestling beginning Friday at 10am and the Championship matches on Saturday at 3:45pm. I believe it will also be aired on flowrestling.org. If you want to see some AWESOME live wrestling, I highly recommend taking a few hours to go watch. I know many college recruiters sit in the stands watching this tournament. Good Luck Raiders! Prove to everyone that we belong by competing hard and bringing home some hardware!
