It may only be the first week of high school wrestling in the state of Iowa, but its already been a big week and there are numerous big meets in the state on the first Saturday of tournament competition. Here is a look at some of the biggest tournaments in the state coming up this weekend.
Keith Young Invite @ Cedar Falls
The Keith Young is always one of the top early season meets in the State of Iowa. Bettendorf, Don Bosco, Waverly-Shell Rock, Denver-Tripoli, Charles City and West Des Moines Valley are just some of the state powers who will be in attendance. Are you planning on going to the Keith Young? Probably would be a good idea to get there sometime before maybe 8:00 AM. It will be a full house!
Independence Invite @ Independence
Always a competitive tournament full of returning and future state qualifiers. Independence as always has a great team (they beat Charles City in a tight dual Thursday) also at this tournament are Osage, Alburnett, Hampton-Dumont, Cedar Rapids Prarie and Linn-Mar.
Eagle Grove Invite
While Eagle Grove wrestling has not been what it once was, the Eagles host one of the top early season tournaments in the state. This year will be the 75th annual Eagle Grove Invite featuring some of the top programs in North Central Iowa.
Seargeant Bluff-Luton Invite
Some of the best wrestling from northwestern Iowa will be at the SB-L Elementary school. Woodbury Central, Akron-Westfield, Heelan and host SB-L
While I know this will fall on deaf ears, and its something that deserves an entire blog. If you are a fan heading to any of these tournaments or any tournament this weekend or throughout the year, remember this….just because you paid for admission, does not give you the right to act like a fool.
