Great wrestling this weekend and much more…


We will conduct one instruction and training session each day in conjunction with Eastern Nationals, and you may attend any or all of them. This is open to ALL wrestlers. Eastern National Qualifiers as well as those not competing in Eastern Nationals are welcome. We strongly encourage qualifiers to attend our Peak Performance Session prior to weigh-ins from 3-5pm on Friday. Additional sessions will be on Saturday and Sunday. These sessions originally planned for our HTC have been moved to the Penn State Wrestling Room in Rec Hall.

RPW – Real Pro Wrestling – Sundays and Wednesdays The action in the 121, 132, and 145 pound weight classes has been awesome. The Pennsylvania Hammer has pulled out in front of the team standings, but the Iowa Stalkers and the New York Outrage are close behind. Tune in Wednesday at 3pm EST on FSN to watch some tremendous wrestling at 145 pounds and then Sunday at 4pm EST on PAX to watch the 163 pounders go at it. Tell your friends to tune in to help promote our special sport.
