Newark Memorial High School is proud to host, with the assistance of WrestlingMart and the Newark Rotary Club, the 29th Annual Rich Swift Memorial Ironman Wrestling Duals on Saturday, December 2, 2017
Rich Swift, recently inducted into the California Wrestling Hall of Fame, was an outstanding teacher, coach, athletic director, and wrestling tournament director in Newark for more than 30 years who passed away in 2013. The tournament promises to be an outstanding day of competition.
For the boyÕs tournament, twelve teams will be divided into three divisions: BLUE Ð Newark Memorial, Morro Bay, Antioch, Will C. Wood; YELLOW Ð Mission San Jose, North Monterey County, Firebaugh, Franklin; WHITE Ð Menlo Atherton, Dougherty Valley, San Leandro, Washington. Each team will then square off for three duals in a round robin format against each team in their group. For the final three rounds (two matches and one bye), the best team in each group will move into the Gold Division to compete for the Ironman team title, while the second-best teams will compete in the Silver Division, the number three teams will match up in the Bronze Division and the number four teams will move into the Copper Division for the final three rounds.
Just as competitive, the girlÕs division of grapplers consists of six teams: Albany, Irvington, Morro Bay, Newark Memorial, San Leandro, Walnut.
