GREAT FALLS - Class B/C showcased the depth of its wrestling talent by winning a tournament-high seven titles at the 4th Annual Tournament of Champions sponsored the personal injury law firm of Hoyt and Blewett PLLC. Class AA followed with five titles while Class AA took home two.
The one-day, single elimination all-star wrestling tournament features the top high school wrestlers in the state from classes AA, A and B/C. In order to qualify for the tournament, wrestlers must be top place-winners at the All-Class Wrestling Tournament in Billings.

"The champs put on a real spectacle for the crowd. The wrestling just keeps getting better and better," said tournament sponsor and Great Falls attorney Zander Blewett. "We tip our hats to every wrestler who showed up because they not only put their state title's on the line, they left their hearts on the mat."
