How did you spend your holidays? Some of the top NCAA Division I teams and wrestlers could be found in Chattanooga, Tenn., Hoffman Estates, Ill., or Coralville, Iowa, where these communities played host, respectively, to the Southern Scuffle, Midlands and Soldier Salute tournaments between Dec. 29 and Jan. 2.

The following are some of the highlights of these three tournaments, where six of the Top-10 schools in WIN’s Dec. 12 Tournament Power Index participated. Top-ranked Penn State, which last competed in the Dec. 19-20 National Collegiate Duals in New Orleans, La., where the Nittany Lions won all three duals, did not compete in any of these events. Meanwhile, several of the Top-10 schools did not send a full varsity line-up to one of the holiday tournaments, while No. 2 Iowa was a “quasi” host of the first Soldier Salute.

Southern Scuffle • Jan. 1-2 • Chattanooga, Tenn.

  • Oklahoma State, ranked 14th by WIN in mid-December, claimed a third all-time team title at the Southern Scuffle, which was held for the 19th time and 11th consecutive year in Tennessee since it moved from Greensboro, N.C. to Chattanooga in 2012. The Cowboys were led by the three top-seeded Cowboys who won individual titles, including Daton Fix (133), Dustin Plott (174) and Travis Wittlake (184). The Cowboys’ 181 points is the third most OSU has ever scored at the Southern Scuffle and was 36.5 points more than second-place North Dakota State. The three individual champions for OSU were tied for the most of any team at the event with NDSU. “I thought we wrestled well in most spots,” head coach John Smith said. “We had some matches tonight we were in control of and found a way to lose. But, we also found a lot of ways to win this weekend. Overall, I think it gives our team a chance to continue to develop.”
  • The three individual champs of North Dakota State, ranked No. 18 by WIN before the Scuffle, were Jared Franek (157), who claimed his second-straight Southern Scuffle title, while Kellyn March (149) and Owen Pentz (197) also claimed championships.

  • The only wrestler, ranked No. 1 by WIN in December, to compete in the Southern Scuffle was Northern Colorado’s Andrew Alirez at 141 pounds. The junior lived up to his No. 1 seeding by winning all five matches, including the first four by pin or technical fall before beating Missouri’s 8th-ranked Alan Hart, 8-4.
  • Chattanooga’s unranked Brayden Palmer reached the finals at 133, where he lost 7-3 to Fix. The junior won four matches on his home mat, including a 7-4 quarterfinal win over Iowa State’s 14th-ranked Ramazan Attasauov.

  • Northwestern, the host school of this prestigious event held for the 58th time, captured the team championship for the first time by claiming three individual champions: Yahya Thomas (149), Trevor Chumbley (157) and Lucas Davison (Hwt). The Wildcats were ranked No. 14 by WIN before the event.

  • The event’s Outstanding Wrestler was Princeton’s Quincy Monday, the 2021 NCAA national runner-up who was ranked No. 1 by WIN before the Midlands. He moved up to 165 pounds, where he edged Wisconsin’s Dean Hamiti, 4-3, in the final. He became his school’s fourth all-time Midlands champ.
  • A pair of Keystone State schools — Penn of the Ivy League and Pitt from the ACC — finished in a tie for second place in the team race with 115 points. The Quakers lone champ was junior Michael Colaiocco who won five matches, including victories over All-Americans Taylor Lamont (Wisconsin) in the quarters, Lucas Byrd (Illinois) in the finals and Chris Cannon (Northwestern) in the finals. Pitt featured two champs: No. 2 ranked Cole Matthews (141) and unranked Reece Heller (184). Meanwhile, another unranked Panther, heavyweight Dayton Pitzer, finished second after he upset Arizona State’s defending national runner-up Cohlton Schultz and Wisconsin All-American Trent Hillger.
  • A pair of NCAA Division III wrestlers placed in this event: Wisconsin Whitewater’s Jaritt Shinhoster (2nd at 184) and Nathan Lackman of Rhode Island College, who claimed sixth at 165.
  • A women’s college tournament was held for the first time. North Central College from Illinois dominated the competition as 14 wrestlers placed within the top four with four wrestlers claiming a title in their respective weight classes.

Soldier Salute Tournament • Dec. 29-30 • Coralville, Iowa

  • This event was held in the Xtream Arena, and the hometown second-ranked Hawkeyes had 30 wrestlers in the two-day event. 20 of those Hawkeyes placed in the Top 8 of their weight class and three of the weights featured head-to-head meetings between teammates. That included Iowa’s top-ranked Spencer Lee, who pinned Drake Ayala, at 125, while Max Murin beat Caleb Rathjen, 7-4, at 149 and at 197 where Jacob Warner scored a major decision over Kolby Franklin.

  • In the women’s tournament, Army’s World Class Athlete Program, which is not a college program, featured two champs: Vanessa Ramirez (123) and Tristan Kelly (170). The University of Iowa’s female wrestlers, competing unattached, took home three titles: Sterling Dias (101), Felicity Taylor (116) and Reese Larramendy (143).
