IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR 2014: The 2014 Hokie Open Wrestling Tournament will feature two divisions: 1) OPEN and 2) Freshman/Sophomore! The Tournament will be run on 12-15 mats. The Open will be limited to the first 250 wrestlers and there is currently no limit set for the Freshman/Sophomore division, which is geared for 1st and 2nd year wrestlers (and even Upper Classmen) who might not be ready for the OPEN division. The goal of this division is to provide those individuals MORE opportunity to advance further in an early-season college level tournament.
