Located in the heart of downtown Asheville, the U.S. Cellular Center and the Asheville Buncombe Regional Sports Commission proudly present the 1st annual Great Smoky Mountain Grapple. The Grapple will feature 8 mats in one arena featuring some of the best high school wrestling teams from Western North Carolina and hopefully Tennessee, South Carolina, and Virginia.
Currently, we have commitments from Asheville High, Enka, Erwin, Mitchell, North Buncombe, Northern Guilford, Pisgah, Reagan, T.C. Roberson, Trinity, North Carolina but we are looking to complete a field of at least 24 varsity programs.
For teams traveling from out of state, we are looking at the potential of adding a dual match on Thursday evening, December 21st.
