To put these placings into perspective you need to understand that this tournament is not divided by classes. Classes 3A-6A all wrestle the same brackets. Nearly 150 teams competed at this tournament. This is by far the toughest tournament any Oklahoma school wrestler will compete in, with probably the largest number of wrestlers in each bracket. Any medal won at this tournament is an outstanding achievement.
Outstanding job to all 12 of the Grove Junior High wrestlers who participated in this tournament.
