Tennessee Wrestling State Champions To Compete In Post-Season “Best Of The Best” Event

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

This March, elite wrestlers from all high schools in Tennessee will be able to showcase their skills against each other, regardless of division or school size.   

The Middle Tennessee Wrestling Officials Association (MTWOA) and Compound Sportwear present “Tennessee’s Best of the Best presented by Compound Sportwear”, a post-season quad wrestling meet, which will pit state champions from each wrestling classification against each other to showcase the top wrestlers statewide. Champions from Division I AAA, Division I A/AA, and Division II will be joined by one wild card entry in each weight class to form 4 mixed teams that will compete in a dual format. Teams will compete in three duals. This post-season event will be held at 5 p.m. on March 2, at Oakland High School in Murfreesboro, Tn.

“We are extremely excited for these high school wrestlers to see how they compare to champions from other divisions,” said John Gannon, president of the MTWOA. “It will be a great night to celebrate and showcase elite scholastic wrestling in Tennessee.”

Wrestling crowned one champion per weight class until 1997, when public and private schools split into separate divisions. The championships were further divided in 2014, when public schools separated into small school and large school classifications. This event gives wrestling fans the opportunity to see elite wrestlers compete from all over the state and from every division and classification.

Cliff Fretwell of Compound Sportswear added, “We are excited to support Tennessee’s Best of the Best. Compound Sportswear is dedicated to supporting and growing wrestling all over the southeast. We are honored to be involved with such a prestigious event that showcases young up and coming talent! The talent growth and success on the national level in recent years is a testament to events like these!”

Proceeds from this event will go toward funding wrestling in Tennessee. Oakland High School is at 2225 Patriot Dr., Murfreesboro, Tn. 37130.
