The Desert Storm Invitational, hosted by Dixie High School, has come to be one of the toughest tournaments in the Western United States. Teams from multiple neighboring states, along with Utah power-house programs make the trek to St. George to compete. It's a traditional double-elimination format and it's a BATTLE to make it to the medal podium. We anticipate you'll see some Green and Gold there when the dust settles.
Here are the details. Pay close attention as there are a number of unique situations for this tournament:
Varsity – Double elimination bracket tournament placing top six
JV Day 1 – Bracket tournament, placing the top four wrestlers.
JV Day 2 – Bracket tournament continued; Round Robin bracket for JV wrestlers eliminated on Day 1.

The JV tournament will be a double elimination bracket tournament. They will have a second round robin tournament on Saturday for all JV wrestlers that were eliminated on Friday. This should allow for a completion of the JV tournament and get those JV wrestlers matches that were eliminated on Friday. This should hopefully get those JV wrestlers 6 to 7 matches for the weekend.
