July 13-19 | 9AM Central

Given the size of the list of the qualifiers, this roster is subject to change in the coming two weeks. However, right now they have nine ranked wrestlers slated to attend, including four ranked in the Top-10 at their weight.

  • #4 at 285 Hayden Copass
  • #5 at 160 BJ Bailey
  • #7 at 145 Dean Hamiti
  • #8 at 152 Fidel Mayora
  • #13 at 195 Brandon Hoselton
  • #20 at 126 Cameron Johnson
  • #20 at 138 Luke Odom
  • #20 at 182 Adrien Cramer
  • #20 at 220 Apollo Gothard

Copass is a defending champ, and unranked Ronan Schuelke also made the finals a year ago, while Fidel Mayora was a Cadet champ back in 2017. They will also be led by a strong group of graduates competing in their final high school event.

  • Abe Assad (#3 at 182, Iowa)
  • Luke Luffman (#4 at 285, Illinois)
  • Trevor Chumbley (#9 at 145, Northwestern)
  • Alex Cramer (#11 at 170, Old Dominion)
  • Reece Heller (#19 at 152, Hofstra)

Assad was a finalist in 2017 and Cadet world bronze medalist last year, while Luffman is a defending champ. Aside from their ranked hammers, the Land of Lincoln often relies on strong performances from unranked athletes who always excel in the international styles, and you know they'll be in the hunt for both Greco titles as well.

Fargo Rosters: Ohio | California | Oklahoma | Iowa | Pennsylvania

Below is the complete list of qualifiers, most of whom will likely be in attendance.
