This worked out GREAT last year and is back by popular demand of the coaches. Any Freshman or Sophomore who did not make it to day 2 of the tournament has the opportunity to wrestle in a 2nd chance “quick run” tournament on day 2 in the auxiliary gym. Matches are 3 minutes and are not “official” so they cannot be counted towards their season record report. It is considered a scrimmage and gives younger wrestlers a chance to get more experience. 9th & 10th Graders ONLY, NO Exceptions. More details at coaches meeting Day 1.


Hampton Inn (Solon) For reservations and special rate call: 440-542-0400
6035 Enterprise Parkway, Solon, OH 44139
