Guam - The 2011 Best in the West Wrestling Tournament is scheduled for February 5th at St. John's High School. Weigh-ins for the event will be held on Friday February 4th at the schools gym from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm in Room 26. The tournament is open to all wrestlers with no residency requirements.

There will be a party of about 30 people coming for the tournament from Japan (coaches, wrestlers, referees, others), and possibly a few from Chuuk.  The Japanese wrestlers are from Nittai and Kokushikan Universities as well as Aoyama Jr. Club and the Taku Shinjyuku Club. The Guam Amateur Wrestling Federation is hosting the tournament looking to increase awareness of wrestling and grow the sport of wrestling in the region.

This is a great opportunity for all former and current wrestlers to participate and help wrestling on Guam reach new heights as we increase our competitiveness in the world arena. 

This is also an excellent opportunity for our local high school wrestling teams that will be headed to Camp Humphries, S. Korea for the 2011 Far East Wrestling Tournament to get some mat time.  The tournament is also a tune up for our Guam National Wrestling Team that will be headed to Apia, Samoa for the 2011 Oceania Wrestling Championships.
