Spokane awarded USA Wrestling's Cadet National Duals for 2018 & 2019

USA Wrestling, the national governing body for wrestling in the United States, has selected Spokane to host the 2018 and 2019 Cadet National Duals, a major age-group national event in the Olympic wrestling styles. This is the annual national dual meet championship in men's Freestyle and Greco-Roman at the Cadet age level (15-16 years old). The event features USA Wrestling state association teams from across the nation competing in a dual meet format.

Spokane becomes only the eighth city to host the event, which was created in 2000. This marks the first time that the event has been held in the western time zone. Only five other states have hosted the tournament (Colorado, Missouri, Minnesota, Florida and Pennsylvania). The local organizing committee is the Washington USA Wrestling and Spokane Sports Commission.

The competition will be held at the Spokane Convention Center June 12-16 in 2018 and June 11-15 in 2019, which is also the home of one of USA Wrestling's major Folkstyle Tour of America events, the Bigfoot Battle. USA Wrestling has held other major events in Spokane, including the 1996 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in freestyle wrestling, as well as the 2002 Freestyle World Cup.
