The Wisconsin Sports Services/MYAS would like to thank all the Minnesota wrestlers who made the trip to La Crosse to participate in the 2014 Badgerland Nationals.

From our perspective, the tournament was an amazing success again this year. With 7 states represented and moving into the much larger, spacious field house, we feel very good about the future potential of this event. The talent was astounding and the sportsmanship on every mat was great to see. We received nothing but positive feedback from people all weekend and even had the local press there taking action shots and published the story about the Badgerland Nationals on the front page of the local newspaper.

We would also like to thank Coach Dave Malecek and the UW-La Crosse wrestling team as well as the Holmen Viking Wrestling Club for their efforts to make this event a great one. We couldn't do this without dedicated individuals and volunteers that always place first the best interests of youth wrestling.

We are already looking forward to next year's event and our ultimate goal of rounding out the Midwest Wrestling Tour by adding the Hawkeye Nationals next season! Good luck to all wrestlers the rest of the season and if your athlete was a place winner at Badgerland, make sure to register for the Gopher State Nationals in Monticello on February 8-9 for a chance to take home the MWT Belt!

The Badgerland Wrestling Nationals are an extension of the Gopher State Nationals, an event that has established itself as one of the most competitive and well-run wrestling tournaments in the Midwest.  The Badgerland Nationals is the first official event scheduled by the newly formed Wisconsin Sports Services.  The Wisconsin version will mimic the Minnesota tournament in every way with a plan to add a third leg to the series by hosting an Iowa tournament in 2014/15 and create a true Triple Crown series.
