The eleventh annual Hokie Open is here! The tournament will once again kick off the start of college wrestling competition in Virginia on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at the same venue. The event will be held at the Berglund Center in Roanoke, VA (right off of I-81 just north of Blacksburg). We expect up to 30 teams to compete at this year's edition as the 2018 - 2019 season gets underway. Once again, the tournament will feature two divisions:
This year's event WILL NOT BE STREAMED due to a restrictive policy within the ACC. The ACC has the exclusive rights to stream all sports, so this event WILL NOT BE STREAMED because they either don't want to or can't stream the event live on the Web and they won't let us do it. We will once again be using FloArena tournament software to run the tournament, so coaches and fans can follow mat assignments and results.
The 2018 Hokie Open tournament directors reserve the right to make any changes to the tournament that are in the best interests of running and completing the best possible and efficient tournament.
