Championships for the two styles are held separately; one on Saturday and the other on Sunday, which means wrestlers competing in both styles were in for a long weekend. In post-post season action, willing wrestlers will practice for and compete in the Oregon Beach Wrestling Championships later this month at Pacific City.
