As far as NewB's question/complaint goes.... I would tell you that no matter what school you go to, if your a state champion, placer or participant you are invited to the Gut Check as a wildcard. If we didn't invite you but you have those caliber wrestlers by all means email or call me as other coaches have done.
It's wrong to say that there are plenty of wrestlers who belong that don't get invited because we have a full 64-man bracket meaning 896 high caliber guys get in. I'd say that's pretty freaking awesome. Let's just be glad this is a WA tournament that's getting national attention! Good for wrestling.
