Six former Iowa wrestlers will head to Las Vegas to compete at the U.S. Senior Open.

Daniel Dennis (61 kg), Phil Keddy (86 kg), Matt McDonough (57 kg), Brent Metcalf (65 kg), Tony Ramos (57 kg), and Derek St. John (70 kg) will compete in the freestyle tournament.

Spots in the U.S. Freestyle World Team Trials in Madison, Wisconsin, are up for grabs with the top five getting automatic berths in that tournament, which will be held on June 12-14. The winner of each weight at the U.S. Senior Open gets a trip straight to the World Team Trials finals.

Iowa has had success recently in the tournament; Metcalf outscored his opponents 39-0 last year in the event. This will be Ramos’ and St. John’s first appearance in the Senior Open.

The Universal Sports Network will televise Saturday’s finals, which start at 9 p.m. (CDT). NBC Sports Network will replay the finals on May 13 at 10:30 p.m. (CDT).

FloWrestling will broadcast the entire event live.
