Brusly High School, along with Brother Martin High School, would like to invite you and your team to come and enjoy our hospitality and the
competition at our 8th annual Deep South Bayou Duals. The Deep South Bayou Duals is quickly becoming one of the premier high school wrestling events in the country. The field consists of the top Louisiana teams versus a stellar group from multiple states. Over the past 7 years we have been fortunate enough to host many teams from 13 different states. Our goal is to offer participating teams plenty of quality matches as we constantly strive to bring in excellent competition and diverse styles of wrestling. We also thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to expose our out of state friends to a little bit of Cajun Country.
