Online registration for Greco State ends in minutes. Just short of 600 wrestlers registered for Saturday in New Lenox.

U16 (Cadet) 152 is a meat grinder. There is like 5 or 6 guys that could all bring home the title. The draw may play a huge factor in determining who places.

Looking forward to Saturday. Greco can be tough to watch at times. Especially with wrestlers who lack experience.

Greco is awful to watch even if the two guys are world class. They just can't hack it in freestyle or they would do that. It's the minor leagues of wrestling for sure. Would like to see beach wrestling take it over. It's killing our sport. Nobody wants to watch two below average wrestlers hold hands and rub boobies.

Greco can be very strategic. They just cant hack it?....Karelin would beg to differ and would probably love to show you how wrong you are.

Yeah, he can't hack it. That's why he lost to Rulon on a standing on the mat with your hands locked contest. Boring.

Can you just pass the message? They would rather be on the freestyle team, but took the greco path because it's easier to make the team.
