They are the best in the Cowboy State for 2015…now it’s time to see how they stack up to the rest of the USA.

27 wrestlers from various Wyoming high schools are competing at the 2015 National High School Coaches Association Folkstyle Wrestling National Championship Tournament in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Wrestlers begin competition on Friday, March 27th.

Competition starts each day at 7am Mountain Time.

Two losses and you’re out, unless you make it far enough into the bracket.

It’s seniors vs. seniors, juniors vs. juniors, and so forth, as grapplers try to place in the top 8 nationally in their weight class, which is what is need to gain All-American status.

Tevis Bartlett of Cheyenne East is a 2-time National Champion at this event. He placed 3rd last year.

Wrestlers are listed by grade level, weight class, where they placed at the state tournament in February, 2015.
