(Oklahoma City-AP) -- More than one-thousand high school wrestlers will flock to the state tomorrow for the U-S-A Junior National Dual Team championships at Oklahoma City University.

The wrestling will start with Greco-Roman at 9 a-m and freestyle will begin at 5 p-m on Friday.

The freestyle competition is tournament play consisting of four pools with eight teams each. The two teams with the most victories at the end of the preliminary rounds will advance to the championship round. The rest of the teams will compete for third place.

There will be six teams in each pool in the Greco-Roman competition.

High school wrestlers in grades ninth through 12th are eligible. Sixty-five wrestlers will represent Oklahoma with two Greco-Roman teams and four freestyle.
