Seward Kings of the Mountain announced

The King of the Mountain Duals were held Friday and Saturday in Seward.

The duals portion of the tournament was designed to get wrestlers as many matches as possible, with wrestlers sometimes changing teams if that’s what it took to get a good matchup.

After all the duals, the best two wrestlers in each weight class squared off for King of the Mountain titles. In some weight classes without as many wrestlers, the King of the Mountain title was already determined after the duals.

The winners of the King of the Mountain titles follow:
