If you see someone out running with hoods and sweats on, don’t be alarmed. Our friends from USA Wrestling are back in Fargo-Moorhead hosting the largest wrestling tournament in the world! USA Wrestling Junior and Cadet Nationals has been a staple in the Fargo-Moorhead community every summer for the last 18 years. We’ve got a “strong” wrestling community that supports the event with thousands of volunteers over the course of the week. If you’d like to check out some of the matches you can visit the USA website for a schedule of events.
In case you’re not familiar with who’s competing, here’s a quick rundown:
- Cadets (15-16 year old)
- Juniors (17-18 year old)
- Women (15-18 year old).
These athletes will compete for national championships in Greco-Roman (can’t touch the legs–all upper body) and Freestyle (similar to HS or Collegiate wrestling).
Good luck and welcome back!
Here’s a little video we did a couple years ago.
