New York Wrestling News has covered hundreds of tournaments over the past few years, and now, we’re involved in one of our own - the Lion's Den Invitational presented by New York Wrestling News and powered by NYWAY on October 8.

This event will not only provide another opportunity in the Empire State for great wrestling, but will help the New York Wrestling News site continue to showcase New York wrestling at all levels, giving the competitors and teams the exposure they deserve.

The tournament will be held at Tuttle Gym on the campus of the College at Brockport for high school wrestlers in the 15 NYSPHSAA weight classes and will be streamed on trackwrestling. In addition, the high school finals will be posted to the New York Wrestling News website.

State champions Greg Diakomihalis (Hilton), Frankie Gissendanner (Penfield) and Anthony Noto (HFL) have agreed to compete, in addition to NYS finalist Cody Anders (Brockport), placers Alex Samson (Victor), Mason Bush (Central Valley) and Marek Bush (Central Valley) and state representatives Max Kropman (Penfield), Cooper Kropman (Penfield), Sammy DePrez (Hilton), Ryan Burgos (Hilton) and Carter Schubert (Williamson), in what will be a very competitive day of action.

There will be custom awards for the top three finishers in each weight and, additionally, the victorious wrestlers will be featured on the front page of the New York Wrestling News website.

We invite wrestlers to join us to prepare for the season in a quality event that will also help our site to continue its extensive coverage of wrestling in New York State.  

For younger competitors looking to get on the mat in a top notch event, G2 World Wrestling Academy will be holding the Lion's Den K-8 Invitational one day prior (October 7) at the same location in Brockport, with custom awards for the top three finishers and coverage on New York Wrestling News

Please see the flyers below for details. We look forward to seeing you at the events!
