The event that everyone wants to see! Billed as a replica of the boys’ (men’s) Journeymen Fall Classic-HS tournament, arguably one of the

toughest preseason competitions in the country! The Journeymen Classic – Over-Flo features the best of three additional segments within

our wrestling community: Middle School, Women and the Over-FLO Challenge.

MIDDLE SCHOOL: The best of the best middle schoolers (6th-8th graders), from across the USA squaring off in a preseason round-robin format.

WOMEN’S DIVISION: Female wrestlers from around the world will battle it out in a round-robin format under freestyle rules. The age

division is a combo division –

UWW Junior and below.

OVER-FLO CHALLENGE: Didn’t make the cut in the Journeymen Fall Classic-HS due to being late or light accolades? Don’t stress. You can work

your way into the event by wrestling in this mini tournament. Winners of identified brackets earn a slot into Sunday’s competition. For those

who feel that this may be beneath them, almost all of the 2014 participants in the Over-Flo Challenge were state placers or state qualifiers.

OVER-FLO EVENT PHILOSOPHY:

Tier 1 – Best of the Best: This is a true battleground for the hardcore wrestlers. Four, five-, six-, or eight-man or lady round-robin brackets

with all decorated and accomplished opponents. National place finishers get preference. *Eight-man round-robins are two four-man groups

with a cross-over.

Tier 2 – Best of the Rest: the next four or five best-accomplished wrestlers are bracketed together. Four-, six-, or eight-man round-robin

brackets with decorated opponents.

PLEASE DO NOT email or call asking for a particular tier or round-robin bracket. It doesn’t work that way. A coaches’ committee from around the country

ranks the wrestlers, which determines the groupings.
