The 2019 Smith-McCarthy State Freestyle & Greco Championships drew about 300 competitors to the Butte Civic Center Saturday.
Usually, the freestyle competition is held on Saturday, while the Greco is held on Sunday. This year, organizers decided to hold both events over the course of one long Saturday.
Tournament results will be posted when available.
