The 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 includes 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 first annual tournament featured the Iowa Hawkeyes co-headlined by the Army, Citadel, and Virginia Military Institute academies. They were joined by many other other D1 programs and athletes from around the country. The newly announced Iowa Women’s Wrestling program were also represented (un-attached in 2022) on the women’s side that was highlighted by Life University, Iowa Wesleyan, Indiana Tech and many other top-level programs.
The second annual Solider Salute college wrestling tournament will take place at Xtream Arena in Coralville, Iowa on December 29-30
