The personal injury firm of Hoyt and Blewett PLLC in Great Falls is sponsoring the third annual TOC. It is a one-day, single-elimination tourney that tries to include the state champions from each of Montana's three classifications and a wild-card to resolve "all debates about who is the king of the mat in Montana," said oranizer Anders Blewett.
Last year, 52 wrestlers competed including 28 state champions. The semifinals are Saturday at the Great Falls High School old gym at 10 a.m. and the finals are at noon.
