Montana State University-Northern heavyweight Jase Stokes, right, won an individual title at last weekend's Tyler Plummer Classic in Dickinson, North Dakota. Now the Lights are set to compete in the even tougher Missouri Valley Invitational.

The 2019 NAIA national wrestling tournament is still seven weeks away. But the Montana State University-Northern Lights will get as close to a look at what nationals will be like as they can get when they travel to Marshall, Missouri, this weekend.

The third-ranked Lights will be in Missouri for the annual Missouri Valley Invitational, a tournament which attracts most of the top NAIA programs in the country.

So, as in years past, the tourney in Missouri will have a national-tournament feel to it, especially with top-ranked Grand View, the five-time defending champions in attendance.
