Southern Plains Regionals Championships

The Southern Plains Regional Championships will be held in Dodge City, KS, from June 3-5, 2016.




USA Wrestling’s regional events are contested in freestyle and Greco-Roman, the only two styles of wrestling at the Olympic level. Freestyle wrestling is exciting, creative, and dynamic because points can be scored from almost anywhere. The most recent Olympic wrestling gold medals were won by freestyle wrestlers Jordan Burroughs and Jake Varner in 2012, and Henry Cejudo in 2008. Other notable freestyle wrestlers include Cael Sanderson (Olympic gold medalist and four-time undefeated NCAA champion), Jake Herbert (World silver medalist and two-time NCAA Champion), and Tervel Dlagnev (World bronze medalist and two-time Division II NCAA Champion). Greco-Roman wrestling is known for powerful lifts and big throws, as all attacks must be made above the waist. Current National Greco-Roman Head Coach Steve Fraser was a gold medalist in 1984, and Rulon Gardner won gold in 2000.
