The NCAA season is upon us! The season has already been full of upsets, and great performances. This season brings extra excitement for us at PINnacle with the NCAA Division 1 tournament being held at US Bank in Minneapolis.
One of our goals as coaches is for our wrestlers to compete at the next level, and to get an education. There are currently 41 PINnacle Alumni on NCAA Division 1 rosters. The last few years we have had an incredible group of wrestlers and people come through the program. The first day we opened our facility we talked to the Elite Youth group and told them that we believe there are no limits to the potential of this group and they can be Olympic and NCAA Champions. These wrestlers, and parents, believed in us, and we still believe in them! Currently, 9 wrestlers are ranked in the Division 1 level(rankings by Flowrestling and Trackwrestling). 7 of the 9 ranked wrestlers were in our first youth group in 2009!.
