We officially ring in the start of the 2019 high school season with perhaps the season’s biggest tournament. More than 1,000 high school wrestlers will head to Greensboro, North Carolina, this weekend for Super 32, one of the crown jewels of high school wrestling.
The field is always one of, if not the deepest in the nation, and this year is no different. We’ve got north of 100 ranked wrestlers ready to descend upon the Greensboro Coliseum in hopes of leaving with a title belt.
In our preview, we’ll take you weight by weight and let you know about all the names you need to know as well as our predictions for all 14 champions.
2018 Final: Stevo Poulin dec. Drake Ayala, 11-8.
With Poulin not returning and Ayala up at 120 this year, we’re guaranteed both a new champ and a pair of new finalists. In fact, six placewinners from this weight in 2018 return, but each of them are up at either 113 or 120. So who are the new names you need to know?
The weight is highlighted by the No. 2-ranked wrestler in the country, Cory Land. Land, just a sophomore, absolutely dominated in the state of Alabama last year, going 51-0 on the way to a state title. By the end of the season, he had cemented himself in the top 10 nationally after winning NHSCAs and then climbed to No. 2 after some weight changes.
