CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - The UNI-Dome will be packed with some of the nation's best young wrestlers this weekend.

The ASICS USA Wrestling Folkstyle National Championships is expected to attract its biggest field ever for the event that is set for Friday through Sunday on the University of Northern Iowa campus.
