Our next event is the MRVC tournament this weekend. The MRVC was originally formed as the BIG FIVE Conference in 1928 and were represented by: Cameron, Carrollton, Excelsior Springs, Liberty, and Richmond. Lexington and Marshall were added making the BIG SEVEN. Higginsville took the place of Cameron in 1937, and the BIG SEVEN was renamed the Missouri River Valley Conference. In the 70s, Odessa replaced Marshall and Oak Grove replaced Liberty. Pleasant Hill was added in the 80s, Knob Noster was added in the 90s, while Grain Valley, Harrisonville, Excelsior Springs (rejoined) and Holden all entered in the 2000s.
Even back in the 30s, the MRVC was historically identified as one of the toughest wrestling conferences in the state of Missouri. This is evidenced today by examining how these schools are ranked as a team in the State. In addition to the MRVC teams not ranked, we will face off against Excelsior Springs (ranked 10th in Class 2), Harrisonville (6th in Class 2), Grain Valley (4th in Class 2), Odessa (3rd in Class 2), and Oak Grove (1st in Class 2). Currently, Holden is ranked 9th in the state as a team. This is the first time in school history that we’ve been ranked as a team!
As always, thanks for your support!
