Spearfish to Host Black Hills Nationals

21 Oct, 2020

The 17th Annual Black Hills Nationals Folkstyle Wrestling Tournament has been rescheduled to October 23-24, 2020 in Spearfish, South Dakota. (We will possibly have a dual meet competition on Sunday Oct. 25 this will be determined at a later date).

Friday there will be weigh-ins from 1 pm-5 pm. Ay 6:30pm-8 pm, a wrestling clinic for all participants as well as a continuing education mechanics referee clinic.

Saturday will be the individual tournament.

It is hard to know the long-term impacts COVID-19 will have on our country, our communities, and the sport we love.  What we do know is that hope is more important than ever!  Hope and our unified spirit as Americans have helped us through some of our toughest times in history. Each year BHN makes donations and offers scholarships to deserving wrestling clubs and individuals; this year a portion of BHN’s proceeds will be donated directly to the COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund (United Way) to help our fellow Americans in their time of need. 

Finally, a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you for being a part of the 17th Annual Black Hills Nationals Wrestling Tournament. 

Updated information will be found here.

Again our tournament has been rescheduled for October 23-24, 2020, in Spearfish, SD, based, of course, on pandemic conditions and medical precautions/guidance. 

We hope you all stay safe and healthy.  Love and comfort to you and your families.
