For Immediate Release
Alexandria, Virginia - The National Collegiate Open presented by X-Athletic Apparel has released the Wrestling Coalition of the District of Columbia Top Contenders.
Six athletes from each weight class have been selected as Top Contenders by using the Dual Impact Index presented by the National Collegiate Open and past National Collegiate Open results.
Due to the event drawing many athletes from around the country that have spent the season competing in regional opens, seeding is a very subjective process. As a result, the National Collegiate Open has chosen to never seed the event. However, Top Contenders are separated in the brackets to ensure they do not meet until the quarter-finals.

Top six finishers at the 2015 National Collegiate Open presented by X-Athletic are recognized as National Collegiate Open All-Americans and will earn awards provided by X-Athletic. This year’s event will have video coverage provided by Flowrestling.
