This year like in years past the Rumble at the Rock showcased some new talent making their way unto the high school wrestling scene. Seen some old faces like Justin Turner the old Coach of St Marks now coaching Cabo Arkansas. Seen some upsets, some proved worthy of their rankings and the Hospitably Room was the bomb. The tournament was well ran and to my knowledge had no issues.
Rockwall High School won the Boys tournament with 180 team points followed by College Park for 2nd with Arlington Bowie barely edging out Houston Westside 129 to 127.
Houstons Cy-Wood won the girls tournament with 98 points followed by Houston Cy-Fair with 77 for 2nd and College Park women claiming a 3rd place finish by .5 of a point over Keller Central 74.5 to 74.
