Here is another tournament that those who are not in a fall sport should definitely wrestle in (if you have at least a year’s experience). This is close enough that even those who are in a fall sport should try and get to this tournament. It’s always a good opportunity to get on the mat.
If you have no experience it would be a good idea to go with someone from our team who is wrestling and just watch to see how some matches go and what a tournament atmosphere is like.
Let’s get a big Whitman turnout at this tournament!
