Outstanding wrestler awards for Blackford Duals

TEMPE - Ok, it is about time I got one of these up and running.

We are live from the inaugural Steve Blackford Duals at Arizona State's Wells Fargo Arena.

The hope is that this becomes the unofficial state dual tournament in the years to come.

There are 32 teams from all around the state and from all divisions.

The first year doesn't have every top team as schools like Desert Vista, Ironwood Ridge and Corona del Sol had out of state commitments.

Here are the rules:

The most fresh take will be at the top, scroll down to the bottom to see old results.

There will be misspellings and delays. I am doing the best I can to keep up with the action but it is not always easy.

Feel free to log-in to the web site by creating a user name and comment along. I will try and respond if I can.

Lastly enjoy.
