  • NJCAA National Qualifier at Triton College this Sunday, February 12

    River Grove, Ill.--The 25th ranked Triton College Trojans wrestling program will again play host to the Central Division tournament this Sunday, February 12 at 9:00 a.m.

    The Central Division tournament is the national qualifying tournament for nine of the NJCAA's top teams and regularly accounts for more than 25% of the total All-Americans at the NJCAA National Tournament.

    70% of the place winners from this year's Central Division tournament will move on to wrestle for National Champion and All-American status at the National Championship Tournament, held this year in Rochester, Minnesota, taking place February 23 through 25. That percentage will be determined by the total number of entrants in the tournament and will include a small number of wild card.

    "We're honored to be hosting the tournament again this season," said Triton Head Coach Harry McGinnis. "Many of the best wrestlers in the nation come through this tournament and earn their way to receiving scholarships to four year schools as a result of how well they perform here."

    Along with Triton, the district tournament includes #4 Lincoln College, #8 Harper College, #10 Muskegon College, #21 Rend Lake, Kennedy-King College, Waubonsee Community College and Wright College. Individually, 23 top-ranked opponents from the most recent NJCAA national coaches' poll.

    This year, a last minute "new" addition to the tournament came way last week in the form of Wentworth Military from Lexington, Missouri to make for nine teams.

    The Triton College Trojans wrestling team would like to invite all members of the wrestling community to come and attend this event and support wrestling not only in Illinois, but at the collegiate level, as well. Admission to the event is $5 for adults and $3 for students and children.
