Super 32 - 1st Round Matchups

By MI Grappler, 10/12/19, 5:45AM EDT


Super 32 kicks off his morning in Greensboro, North Carolina and Michigan is bringing many of its best to test themselves against the rest of the country in what has become the toughest folkstyle tournament in the nation.  

This year's crop of Michigan preps yields both a high quantity as well as high quality.  In all, 31 wrestlers will be competing.  Of that number, 19 of them are ranked in the top-ten of their respective classes in Michigan Grappler's Class Rankings.  While Josh Edmond enters as the only returning Super 32 placer, eight others have placed at either Fargo or UWW- the other two major national tournaments.  Further, five Michigan GFC finalists (3 champs) from a week ago are back in action.

Typically we'd do an article pinpointing a handful of guys who would be the state's "Best Bets," but this group is too deep to single out just a handful.  It's definitely possible that the state-record of 9 placers (set in 2011) could be within reach. 

Recent years have seen a few performances that really put guys on the map.  Last year River Shettler's 5th place finish solidified himself as a top-20 guy in the country, and the year prior both James Whitaker and Layne Malczewski catapulted themselves into the national conversation as well.  

Take a look below at the first matchups for all of the high school wrestlers getting ready to do battle this morning and be sure to check back over the course of the next couple of days,  as well as our social media pages, for continued coverage of the 2019 Super 32 Challenge.
