The Dubuque Wrestling Club is sending 11 wrestlers to the UWW U23 World Team Trials, which takes place in Akron, Ohio. The event starts on Friday June 1st with Greco-Roman competition before switching to freestyle the final two days. With the winners of each weight making a World Team for the United States wrestlers that reach the finals of their respective brackets will compete in a best-of-three showdown. The Trials champion will then get the opportunity to wrestle at the World Championships in Bucharest, Romania in November.

Leading the squad will be Kevin Kelly, who was a NCAA qualifier for the Duhawks this past season at 141 pounds. Kelly is notably registered at 70 kg, which is almost two weights higher than he competed at during the college season.
