37 high school wrestling teams from at least five states are competing in the Bradley Invitational at Bradley Central High School. 14 weight classes, from 106 lbs to the 285 lb heavyweight, are competing.
A handful of Division 1 college prospects are taking to the mats. One is headed to North Carolina, one to Maryland and one to the United States Army. Ben Smith, the head coach of Bradley Central wrestling, said the competition is not only a holiday tournament, but is also meant to simulate state tournaments.
If you would like to attend, the wrestling starts at 9:00 Saturday morning. The finals should start at about 2:30. The cost is $10 for the all-day pass Saturday and $5 for the Finals only pass.
