Action from the InterMat JJ Classic
Registration has opened for the 2016 InterMat JJ Classic, a premier preseason high school wrestling tournament. This year's event takes place on Saturday, Oct. 22, at the UCR Regional Sports Center in Rochester, Minn. Weigh-ins will be held on Friday, Oct. 21, at the venue.
The JJ Classic is open to high school wrestlers, as well as seventh and eighth-graders. The event has attracted wrestlers from all across the country since it was founded in 2010. Last year Mark Hall (Apple Valley, Minn.) claimed his fifth straight JJ Classic title and earned Outstanding Wrestler honors. Champions from last year's event came from Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan.
The entry fee is $40 if registered in the month of September. The entry fee increases to $50 on Oct. 1.
Proceeds from the event go toward the Justin Kukowski Foundation, which provides scholarships for people living with cancer.
