Wrestlers from 12 schools in four states competed in the 38th annual Wrestling Invitational from 9 a.m. until late afternoon on Saturday at the ONU Sports Center.

The fieldhouse was completely covered with mats as multiple matches took place simultaneously throughout the day during the double-elimination event.

Let’s admit it, six hours of watching a wrestling tournament is a long time.

Sometimes you sit on a chair, sometimes the chair sits on you. Aadyn Gibson, 9, was at the ONU Wrestling Invitational at the ONU Sports Center on Saturday to watch brother Chase wrestle for ONU.

There were 332 matches all together. Nine matches went on simultaneously from 9 s.m. until 3 p.m.
