CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The University of Northern Iowa is hosting the Folkstyle National Wrestling Tournament featuring nearly 3-thousand wrestlers ranging in age from 8-18 from throughout the country.

Brad Sorenson of Cedar Falls came up just short in his bid to win a National title in the Junior division at 152 pounds. Clayton Ream of the County Elite wrestling club in Missouri got a second period takedown and held on for a 3-2 victory.

Event organizers believe the three day Folkstyle National tournament pumps hundreds of thousands of dollars into the local economy and UNI Head Wrestling Coach Doug Schwab says it is also a great recruiting tool.
