    Last weekend marked the "official, unofficial" start to the high school wrestling season as the Walsh Ironman took place. This weekend marked another notable mega-event on the high school calendar, the Beast of the East. The Beast returned to the University of Delaware to hold this major tournament for the 28th time. Like most other tournaments nationally, the Beast was not held during the 2019-20 season, because of the Covid pandemic.

    As always, there were a lot of great individual performances. Some of the biggest stars on the high school level were in attendance and showed why they are so highly regarded, while other unfamiliar faces solidified star-status of their own.

    Below are the wrestlers that placed in the top-eight at the Beast of the East and have already committed to wrestle in college.
