Kapwrestling:Desi Kaplan and together with my father, Larry Kaplan, we are Kapwrestling. Desi wrestled for Atholton High School in Columbia, MD, from 1993-1995. Started running tournaments in 1995. We continued to run tournaments while I went to college in Maryland (1997-2001), while in graduate school in North Carolina and while serving in the National Guard (2001-2006). In 2003 Larry joined Desi running tournaments in MD and since then travels with Desi running tournaments. In the past seventeen years we have run over 100 high school wrestling tournaments ranging from 8-man to 64-man brackets. In 2005, Desi began programming for wrestling and 2007 worked with Doug to bring live results closer to product. In 2009 we launched the new website representing our solution for the paperless tourney, live wrestling results.
