The inaugural Soldier Salute collegiate wrestling tournament begins a new annual tradition of recognizing and honoring our former, current, and future service members. The tournament is hosted by the Iowa City Area Sports Commission and will include both a women’s and men’s division. 100% of the annual tournament proceeds will be split between the United Service Organizations (USO) and a development fund targeted towards the continued growth of high school girls wrestling.
The Iowa Hawkeyes will bring a full squad that will be co-headlined during this first year by the Army, Citadel, and Virginia Military Institute academies. They will be joined by many other other D1 programs and athletes from around the country. The newly announced Iowa Women’s Wrestling program will also be represented (un-attached in 2022) on the women’s side that will be highlighted by Life University, Iowa Wesleyan, Indiana Tech and many other top-level programs.
The inaugural Solider Salute college wrestling tournament will take place at Xtream Arena in Coralville, Iowa on December 29-30
