The 25th annual Beast of the East is shaping up to be one of the best in years. This tournament is normally the first event in which New Jersey public schools can compete, so it is always fun to see how they compare with the schools that have been wrestling for two to three weeks. Two of the top squads in the country, Blair Academy and Bergen Catholic, will vie for a team title in this crowded, talented field. Five of TOM’s top-ranked wrestlers are expected to compete and contend for Beast titles.

Please join us now as we go weight-by-weight through the field, breaking down the contenders and making our predictions for the top eight in each bracket!
