Battle of Waterloo Wrestling Tournament 2021

Welcome to Iowa’s premier high school wrestling tournament – the Battle of Waterloo!

Now entering its second decade, the Battle of Waterloo has earned a reputation as an exciting, well-run two-day tournament featuring wrestling teams from every corner of the state. The matches never disappoint as some of the state’s most elite wrestlers square off in a 32-team bracket.

Battle of Waterloo is the No. 1 dual meet tournament in the state!

How the 32-Team Dual Wrestling Tournament Works

DAY 1
