About the Mountain Top Classic

2013 Tournament Flier

The Mountain Top Classic was started to provide more opportunities for young athletes to learn, develop and grow.  From the beginning, the tournament was intended to be different from other tournaments in Utah, awarding athletes for excellence for placement from 1st through 6th place, as well as offering Outstanding Wrestler trophies, Fastest Pin trophies and Team trophies for the freestyle competition.

In 2007, the format was expanded, offering Outstanding Wrestler, Fastest Pin and Team trophies in the Greco-Roman competition, as well.  That year, Sportsmanship Awards were also added to the list.

This formula for success also led to the formation of the Intermountain Champion Series in 2007.  Tournament Director Bill Kilpack co-founded the series with Lani and Terry Wall of Boise, Ida., to recognize the accomplishments of athletes in the Intermountain West.  Through the series, Intermountain Champions are recognized, using a point system for the tournaments in the series.  This has increased the appeal of these tournaments and drawn athletes from more and more Mountain States. 

The first series consisted of the Mountain Top Classic and the Idaho Express Invitational.  In 2008, the series expanded to include the Box Elder Tournament in Brigham City, Uta., and the Kuna Classic in Kuna, Ida.  In 2009, the series includes the Mountain Top Classic in Sandy, Uta., the Kuna Classic in Kuna, Ida., and the Bonneville Classic in Idaho Falls, Ida.
