2012 Zinkin Classic Dec. 21st & 22nd
You are invited to attend the 11th Annual Zinkin Classic, December 21st & 22nd, 2012. This is a 48-man bracket, true double elimination varsity tournament held on 8-11 mats with 3-sided digital clocks over two days. We will again have a large & small school champion along with awards for all wrestlers earning 1st – 8th place.
The Zinkin Classic has become one of the premiere wrestling tournaments in the state of California. Seven of the past ten California State Team Champions began their season by participating in the Zinkin. Last year’s tournament included over 60 teams throughout the state. Here is how the field fared at the 2012 California State Tournament:
-3 State Champions
-7 State Finalists
-22 State Medalists
-80 State Qualifiers
-State Team Champions
We are looking to add top tier teams that will improve upon these numbers, making the Zinkin California’s best initial look at state contenders!
Contracts have been sent out to the best teams in the Western United States as we look to make the Zinkin a national caliber tournament. It is important to secure a spot for your team as soon as possible as we will only be taking the first 70 teams to sign and return their contract. Already we have top teams participating from around California and states such as Oregon and Texas, so look for the quality, top-end competition to continue to rise.
Our central location, combined with the Friday later start time and Saturday early end time, provides affordable travel as well as an early look at some of the best competition in the state. If you would like to consider entering California’s, and the Western United State’s, best early season tournament, please contact Lonnie_Nash@hotmail.com or call me at (559) 905-0232
