I am so about the communication!! So, here is a bit more information. If you have any questions or information that needs to get out, please e-mail the state secretary, Marina Scott, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the event that you were living under a rock, USA won the Freestyle World Cup this past weekend!! Our very own Events Director, Rob Cate, was there live at the action at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa!! To check out the results, click HERE!
**As many as you have seen, the e-mail that went out late last night mentioned a trip to Indiana for the Schoolboy Duals. This is a fun and exciting step for our state, and we are sure it's going to be a great time for our wrestlers. In the event that you are looking to have your wrestler go, please be advised that the plane tickets and travel arrangements have already been made for the wrestlers. They have to travel and stay with the team. If you, as a parent, wish to be there to cheer on the team and watch all of the action, the room information in on the flyer below.**
Our awesome Team Lead, Bill Sullivan, and State Director, James Downing, have been working hard to put together a Schoolboy Duals Trip to Indianpolis, IN. I personally spoke with the Indiana State Director about this trip and we are super excited to be able to bring a team there this year from Nevada!! We will need nothing but the best, which is why the highest combined place winner at Olympic State in Carson City, will determine the best to take this lucrative spot on the the National Team.
You're not gonna want to miss this! Click HERE for the informational flyer for this awesome trip!

Nevada Olympic State
I know that everyone has been biting at the bit for information on our very own Nevada Olympic State Tournament. We had a venue secured, but then the venue was unavailable due to a scheduling conflict. So, our very own Vice-Chair moved techtonic plates to get us the MAC Center in Carson City. So far, it looks as if the tournament will still be May 19th and 20th, with weigh-ins the night of the 18th. That's tentative and not chiped away on a stone tablet. But definatly that weekend. The flyer will be out after the open. This is a qualifying tournament for Schoolboy Duals and Fargo. Can't wait to see the battle to the top at this tournament!!
